Women's Work: Lynn Cazabon, Hadieh Shafie, Tory Wright


"sometime yesterday, or maybe the day before"
New Work by Noelle K. Tan

March 20 - April 24, 2009

Opening reception for the artists
Friday, March 20, 2009, 7 to 9pm

In honor of Women's History Month, Civilian presents two exhibitions featuring works from four female artists who archive, transform, and re-mediate forgotten or discarded imagery into new forms. In Women's Work, the artists intervene upon seemingly insignificant material such as discarded motion picture film, cosmetic advertisements, and ordinary paper to create captivating, whirling forms and sculptures. Though formally and conceptually distinct, each project comments on change, the passage of time, and what is preserved versus left behind.

Exhibition hours: Wednesday through Saturday from 12 to 6 p.m.


Civilian Art Projects, an art gallery based in Washington, D.C., supports the voice and vision of the artist through exhibitions, events, and collaborations in D.C. and abroad. The gallery is located in the Penn Quarter neighborhood in downtown Washington near many major museums, galleries, and national treasures.
