Equality Now 

Lara Pacilio 

April 28th 2012 – May 20th 2012 

opening reception Saturday April 28th, 4 – 10pm 

Yes Gallery is proud to present “Equality Now” a benefit and exhibition featuring works by Lara Pacilio, curated by Lesley Doukhowetzky.

Rather than showing women as elegant figures with attractive poses Lara Pacilio takes on a whole different perspective in which she exposes what women often go through in everyday life. With the use of unconventional tools such as iron and covered wood Pacilio is able to create pieces that are sensual yet bold, graphic yet subdued with images showing the pains and struggles of women.

At an early age Pacilio traveled around the world with her family, spending parts of her childhood in Africa. It becomes evident that her experiences traveling have been used as a tool for inspiration. Pacilio tells us not only about herself and her experiences but also about a unique concept in a language that is sometimes extremely explicit, depicting problems linked to the gender differences which are still numerous and of difficult solutions.

Women are defined legally equal to men, but this is an ideological attempt to enslave them at higher levels of society and the job market. Freedom for women is not living the role men have assigned to them but to create mutual respect based on equality.

 Art sales and donations will go towards achieving legal and systemic change that addresses violence and discrimination against women and girls around the world.

Yes Gallery will be representing:

Possessed of a scrappy, youthful verve lacking in its more prestigious neighbors… Fountain was distinguished by a vintage street/self-taught aesthetic.” —ArtForum

The way an art fair should be.”  —The Economist

“The artists displaying their multimedia wares here are true avant-garde upstarts.” —NBC

“Fountain draws the type of unruly installations and unsettling performances that make it an unpredictable must-see… It’s perfect for jaded art lovers wondering where they can stumble across fresh, anti-corporate, stick-it-to-the-man hijinks in a laid back environment reminiscent of Burning Man” —Miami New Times

Fountain Art Fair was founded in 2006 as an attempt to leverage support for smaller independent galleries to gain access to larger collectors and critics. Since its inception, Fountain has held six exhibitions in New York, one in Los Angeles, one in Chicago, and is now celebrating its sixth exhibition in Miami. From its roots deep within the independent Brooklyn art scene, Fountain has grown to represent over 20 international avant-garde galleries and projects, showcasing progressive primary-market works.
