NOT MY IDEA: A Solo Exhibition of the Work of Dawn Frasch
Impulses of seduction and repulsion color Not My Idea, the first New York City solo exhibition of contemporary artist Dawn Frasch. Employing art historical reference, dark humor, and the absurd, Frasch works across media from painting to drawing to gruesomely humorous narrative animation portraying her response to the political and religious institutions that have shaped her experience. Rather than prescribing a morality, as she sees the institution doing, Frasch uses her work to take back control of the female body, its functions and aesthetics.
