Kotik, the 2015 A.I.R. National Artists Exhibition,
Transformed Viewpoints, is an energetic reflection of the
face of today’s feminism across the U.S.

Kotik says:“The face of feminism has changed over the
last several decades, and this is well reflected in the work
of the present National artists. Certain battles were won;
women artists are better represented by galleries and
exhibited in major institutions. The focus has shied
toward the more comprehensive societal critique that
employs a large variety of formal approaches. This new
viewpoint is no longer centered on the feminist agenda
only. It became a viewpoint of a wide range of
contemporary artists who address issues of the current
world and that world’s complex influences on our very

The (artists) select techniques that best suit their intentions and present us with the possibilities of a renewed perception of our reality. Their viewpoints thus transform our own views by crossing accustomed boundaries and opening new, unexpected vistas.”

The 18 artists in Transformed Viewpoints come from as far away as California, Kansas, and North Carolina. One hails from Israel. They represent a wide diversity of practices, and each artist is discovering something unexpected.
