"LaFleur’s work is at once in your face and delicate, choosing a mode of seduction that uses pastiche to lure the viewer in with a hint of familiarity — then jolting them into a world that questions the status quo. “Feminism is part of a larger consciousness of oppression along with racism, ageism, classism, ableism, and sexual orientation,” LaFleur said. “If the fourth wave of feminism is a digital one, feminist art can only be understood within the intersections of suppression and in the context of the marginalization of other groups and genders.”

"Every day, [Renwick Gallery curator Nicolas] Bell scrolls through the more than 20,000 Instagram images with the hashtag ­#RenwickGallery, bewildered and grateful. He has never seen anything like it.

“We’re all flabbergasted, to be frank,” says Bell, who keeps screen shots of his favorite Instagram posts. He flips through a few: a girl in front of [Gabriel Dawe's] “Plexus A1,” eyes wide with amazement.

Lily Hanson's The Once Over Twice reviewed on Glasstire

Glasstire   |   Dec 9, 2015   |   by Suzanne Weaver

"But in her current and fourth show at Conduit Gallery, Hanson has brought restraint and a waste-not-want-not approach to her gestures. Tension is quieted. In turn, there is a kind poetry that is generous, expansive, and felt."

"This fall the Renwick Gallery—the first building in the United States built expressly as an art museum—will open its doors after a major, two-year renovation. To celebrate, we’re transforming the entire museum into an immersive artwork with our debut exhibition, WONDER.

Nine leading contemporary artists—Jennifer Angus, Chakaia Booker, Gabriel Dawe, Tara Donovan, Patrick Dougherty, Janet Echelman, John Grade, Maya Lin and Leo Villareal—are each taking over different galleries in the building, creating site-specific installations inspired by the Renwick. Together, these installations will turn the building into a larger-than-life work of art."
