EXHIBITION Vicki, with an i
Organized by Michelle Grabner

Vicki, with an i speaks to the changing power dynamics afforded woman in western culture.

Latin for ‘Victory” or “Conquer” the name descends from the Greek Goddess Nike. The artists included in this exhibition assert their authority and rights by dedicating time, craft, and critical imagination to a daily routine. Moreover, each artist freely evolves and stretches their visual language with the power that they accrue as woman.

This event is part of the Women's Work series, which was made possible by the Mary L. Nohl Fund / Greater Milwaukee Foundation.
