Her Room/Her World features prints, video, paintings, and installations by New York artist Portia Munson, who approaches environmental and cultural themes from a feminist perspective. At the center of the exhibition is a large installation titled Pink Room, consisting of thousands of discarded pink objects. Pink Room is a visual overload of products that were created to appeal specifically to women and girls, representing mass seduction and consumption.
This solo exhibition considers the work of Portia Munson. Her central installation, “Pink Room,” presents thousands of cast-off pink objects drawn from women’s lives. Could be the current political climate, but what might once have seemed like an innocuous “girl-y” color presents a new gravitas in the wake of so many pink pussy hats, the Women’s March and the frenzy of coming mid-terms.
