In his first solo exhibition in the United States, Leonhard Hurzlmeier continues his painterly examination of women and women’s portraits. Under the title All New Women, he presents a selection of paintings dealing with women’s different social roles, and thus expands his thematic repertoire, which up to now has mostly been devoted to the everyday.

In celebration of Women’s History Month, FemiNest advocates and explores new spaces and places for women in the home, society, culture and politics. Through a variety of mediums, each artist investigates the concept of a nest – both figuratively and abstractly. Themes include gender-specific production and consumption, physical and emotional protection, spirituality, social behaviors inside and out of the domestic landscape, and the void in which cultural palimpsests continue to rewrite history.
