Mira Schor at Frieze New York
Unseen Dick paintings (1988 - 1993)
Spotlight Section // Booth SP30
May 3 - 6
At Frieze New York 2018, Mira Schor (b. 1950, New York) presents never before exhibited “Dick” paintings from 1988-1993 in the Spotlight section. In 'Dicks, or The Impregnation of the Universe' (1988), 'Strange Fruit' (1988), 'MA(me) MA' (1991), and 'Pardon Me Ms.' (1990), Schor approaches scale through structural multiplicity, addressing while undermining the great tradition of painting and dominant ideologies of patriarchy. The fragmented surface slows reading of the images, mounting an internal critique of the gendered character of scale, size, and imagery. In her five-decade career as a painter and theorist, Schor has been committed to painting as a space for expression of contemporary life and feminist politics.
