On Guard New York

ArtMuse+ is pleased to announce ON GUARD, featuring Katya Bankowsky with Maya Angelou, and Katya Bankowsky with Michele Lamy, Zoë Buckman, Megan Euker, Kasia Kay, Tara Lewis, Betsy Odom, Mimi Plange, Cheryl Pope, Annabelle Schlesinger, Marcela Torres and Amina Zoubir, opening October 30th at The Storefront Project in New York City.

Curated by Kasia Kay, the two-part exhibition launched at Matthew Rachman Gallery in Chicago in November 2018. ON GUARD unites uniquely diverse contemporary female identifying artists from 17 to 70 years old, exploring sports and women’s involvement, using athletic games as a vehicle to examine social, cultural and political changes in a global context through traditional and non-traditional depictions of sports-related imagery.

ON GUARD was inspired by “Life Doesn’t Frighten Me,” a book of poetry by renowned author and activist Maya Angelou with illustrations by artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.

An Opening Reception will take place on Thursday, October 30th, and the exhibition will run through December 2019 at The Storefront Project.
