Elizabeth Malaska and May Barruell

Art Focus will talk about a show at Nationale by Elizabeth Malaska, called We Never belonged to You. From the PR:

The body—especially the female body—has long occupied a contentious role within art historical discourse. For We Never Belonged to You, painter Elizabeth Malaska calls upon this familiar dichotomy of subject/object in order to both question and confuse the power of the viewer’s gaze.

The artist plus the director of Nationale May Barruel will join us.
