Pink Noise: Flexing the Frequency demonstrates the prevalence of the feminine association of the color pink in contemporary art and life.

About

Works by contemporary artists in the collection of Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz - and beyond - embody the current ambivalence about pink, either embracing it and amplifying its message or rejecting it as limiting, outdated and trite.

In Pink Noise, female artists flex their collective muscle along that narrow rose-hued continuum - morphing and contorting, expanding and evolving assumed notions of feminity and a "female style". The artists in Pink Noise produce works in a diverse range of media: photography, painting, performance, fiber art, drawing and sculpture.

The more than 30 artists re-define traditionally "female" topics such as motherhood, performance, identity and objectification with a skeptical and discerning eye; and take on new topics once considered outside the female domain.

Having witnessed successive waves of feminism, artists are now breaking and bending rules as to taboo topics, subjects, and behaviors expected of them. They are refusing limitations once assumed to be the constricted purview of women artists. They are subverting stereotypes and expectations and creating an openness previously disallowed for women, and the color pink.
