Titled Girls on Film, this exhibition features a selection of established and emerging artists whose work appropriates images of women taken from a variety of pop-cultural sources. Exploring society's long-running obsession with images distributed through magazines, advertisements, and the cinema, the works in this exhibition depict, manipulate, and examine three historical female archetypes: the starlet, the pinup, and the fashion model. The artists included in Girls on Film uniquely deconstruct or elaborate upon many of the cultural mythologies at the heart of our continued fascination with images of women found in the popular media.
