Hunter retains her edge
NZ-born Alexis Hunter features in the WACK! Art and the Feminist Revolution exhibition at LA’s Museum of Contemporary Art. Hunter moved to London in 1972 aged 24 and has lived and worked there ever since. Her single contribution to the show is a six-panel, 25-ft long painting called The Objects Series (1974-75), depicting anonymous male torsos in striking detail. The Objects Series is name-checked by the LA Times as one of three reasons to visit the sprawling exhibition, which comprises 430 works by 119 artists. LA Times: “This sexy work appears startlingly fresh, almost as if it could have been made today … Thanks to the beautifully rendered Photorealist style, a lush assertion of feminine power enhances the erotic edge of its otherwise masculine imagery.” Wack! runs from March 4 to July 16.
