An Open Myth: reimagining gender and femininity

Nina Klein 

An Open Myth: reimagining gender and femininity 

January 15 – February 3, 2021 (12-6pm) 

37-39 Clinton Street, New York 

Space 776 is pleased to present an exhibition of 19 new paintings by Los Angeles based artist Nina Klein at Space 776 New York in collaboration with Uncommon Beauty Gallery, on view from January 15 to February 3, 2021. 

Using various media such as acrylic, gouache, and enamel paint on paper or unprimed canvas, Nina Klein creates her signature visual lexicon of symbolic shapes within the female body. The symbolic and iconographic shapes found within Klein’s paintings serve as vehicles to express themes of sex and identity, and pose questions about traditional gender roles and expectations. Klein subverts the male gaze by representing female experiences such as the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, and birth as well as reimagining archetypal mythic female figures, such as the witch or the Virgin Mary, as subjects seen and created through a female lens.
