Purple

A Group Exhibition by YOUNITY

October 19 – November 18, 2012

 

September 2012, Brooklyn, NY — This October, eleven female contemporary artists will explore Purple as a color, word and psychological context in a freestyle exhibition where medium, formal strategies and process intersect to create original content.

 

Purple will be on view at Causey Contemporary Gallery, 92 Wythe Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, from October 19 - November 18, 2012, with an opening reception from 6pm – 9pm on Friday, October 19th. This exhibition is produced by YOUNITY, an international collective of urban female visual artists, designers and craftswomen. The collective collaborates on creative projects, resource networks, mentoring of youth, community building, and the production of art exhibitions that promote women in the arts.

 

Curated by Diana McClure and YOUNITY co-founder Alice Mizrachi, this exhibition features a group of internationally recognizable street, mural, urban and contemporary artists from across the United States and abroad including: Alice Mizrachi, Diana McClure, Gilf!, Lady Pink, Lichiban, Miss Van, Olek, Priscila De Carvalho, Queen Andrea, Ritzy Periwinkle, and Sofia Maldonado.

 

From electric purple, Tyrian purple and Han purple, to purple prose, purple patches and human color psychology, the color purple has been tapped by the musician Prince, the author Alice Walker, the French art publication Purple Journal, and the ancient world, to convey a certain psychological vibration, spiritual energy or visual message.  In this exhibition, each artists’ interpretation of purple aims to unlock new readings on the visceral, intellectual, conceptual, spiritual and pleasurable aspects of the color purple.
