Allison Zuckerman, whose works were featured in our past GO FIGURE exhibition, has a new solo exhibition opening at the Akron Art Museum. Pirate and Muse is on view from October 27, 2018. - January 21, 2019.
“Allison Zuckerman pillages Western art history, dismantling bodies and piecing together new ones that expose vulnerability and imperfection. Zuckerman’s figures are amalgams of body parts, clothing and background elements from artists [all male] throughout history, and Disney and other pop culture imagery. Paintings and sculptures made for Pirate and Museevidence her embrace of the label “pirate,” as a plunderer of art history who brazenly steals from other artists.”
