Coming to Power: 25 Years of Sexually X-Plicit Art By Women at Maccarone Gallery

This fall, Maccarone will re-stage the landmark feminist exhibition Coming To Power: 25 Years of Sexually X-Plicit Art by Women, curated by Ellen Cantor at David Zwirner Gallery in 1993. As a new iteration of Coming to Power, in dialogue with the themes of the original exhibition, Pati Hertling and Julie Tolentino will co-curate a performance program from a new generation of artists, including Niv Acosta, Jim Fletcher, FlucT, Xandra Ibarra/La Chica Boom, Kia Labeija, and Narcissister.
From September to November 2016, the work of Ellen Cantor (1961-2013) will be featured in four concurrent exhibitions and a series of screenings and public programs. Exhibitions will take place at Foxy Production, Maccarone, NYU’s 80WSE Gallery, and PARTICIPANT INC, with public programs hosted by Skowhegan, and a screening of video works at Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI). The world premiere of Cantor’s film Pinochet Porn (2008-2016) will take place at The Museum of Modern Art, New York. This unprecedented collaboration between organizing venues and the Estate of Ellen Cantor seeks to open dialogue surrounding Cantor’s multifaceted and groundbreaking work.
