Curatorial Intensive alumna Rachel Reese will present on Radical Plastic – on view this summer at CUE Art Foundation – together with artists Carson Fisk-Vittori and Ria Roberts, whose works are included in the exhibition. As a prelude to the exhibition, they will discuss some of the themes that underpin it and the strategies they use as curators and artists to navigate legacies of feminism and gender politics.

Radical Plastic features Becca Albee, Carolyn Carr, Catherine Czacki, Rachel Debuque, Carson Fisk-Vittori, Mia Goyette, Michelle Grabner, Ria Roberts, and Carolyn Salas—artists who employ formal visual languages to address human contexts including the problematics of bodies and gender-based constructs. Radical Plastic is an opportunity to reflect on the idea of "in-between-ness" through the work of artists who explore fluid and liminal areas.

Radical Plastic is presented by the CUE Art Foundation, New York and on view from July 16–August 20, 2016​. For more information about the exhibition and public programs: cueartfoundation.org


This event is free and open to the public. To attend, please RSVP to rsvp@curatorsintl.org with RADICAL in the subject line.
