Boxing Gloves and Bustiers is an exhibition of works that explore the many faces
of heroic female figuration through the lens of contemporary video. The show,
which was curated by artist Kate Gilmore reflects a shift in women's
relationship to power and the subsequent critique this change entails.
The videos range from heroic narratives to short and snappy "music videos",
all of which evoke from the viewer empathy, intrigue and laughter.

“WHERE THERE’S SMOKE, THERE’S SMOKE”
Expansive and challenging, the artwork presented in this exhibition deals with a diverse range of subject matter, realized in various media. Experiments in activism, examinations of subjective realities, America’s rusting industrial and recreational Edens, deadpan re-creations of childhood, chest-beating, pleasure and enlightenment all combine to form a unique body of work from an outstanding group of young artists.
