Chicago readers should visit Gallery 19’s exhibit The Construction Of featuring feminist artist Linda Adele Goodine, who works with photography, video, and performance art.
Goodine’s photographs in The Construction Of focus on her liberation from the feminine mystique. She spits teeth and wishbones into a pile resting next to an animal carcass, creating an image in which she ferociously rejects the restricting expectations of her gender. You can see the complete set of images from her Winter Tales series here.
Goodine also creates environmental art, focusing on endangered areas in New Zealand and the Florida Everglades. These series are full of beautiful color and highlight the transitions these spaces are undergoing while showing local wildlife.
Take a look at Gallery 19’s website or read a great review of the show (and see Antonio J. Martinez’s contrasting hyper-masculine photography) over at Newcity Art. The Construction Of runs until September 19th and is located at 1967 1/2 W Montrose Ave. Check it out!
