Latin for Crab–
a summer group show under the sign of Cancer
“Latin for Crab” considers the female body- its armor, its flesh, bound, determined, embodied- from perspectives of illness, mortality, and recovery. Works in the show derive from artist responses to their own or close associates’ illnesses.
Featuring the work of Pinky Bass, Heidi Kumao, Sarah Cusimano Miles, Karen Edmunds, Jan Gilbert, Monica Zeringue, and Lee Deigaard who also curated. With a special viewer browsing section of related texts and picture books, including The Trotula, a medieval compendium of women’s medicine.
