Currently on-view:

The roughly 21′ x 7′ backdrop entitled Femmejoy was created in relation to Liliana Dirks-Goodman’s Open Spectrum: The Feminist Dinner Party: Present/Future at Live Arts from Sunday, March 8th, 2020. The artist has arranged flower imagery over Andy Warhol’s famous camouflage pattern. The flowers draw on iconic feminist art imagery that symbolizes female to female erotica, such vulvas, mouths, and tongues. Co-opting Warhol’s camouflage, Dirks-Goodman reclaims and reuses pop art references to Capitalist war iconography for the purpose of celebrating pleasure and giving visibility and agency to femme identity.
