    The Affordable Art Fair NYC and A.I.R. Gallery will host Art x Women, a special section of nine galleries exhibiting solely work by women artists.  As the first fair to present such a focus, we are extremely excited to launch this project at a time when there is an overwhelming interest in women artists and feminist art.  The project will include Women Talk, programming, talks and tours by A.I.R. Gallery Artists and others; A Recent Graduates booth presented by A.I.R. Fellow, Sam Vernon; and Special Installations including a work by A.I.R. Artist, Daria Dorosh and former A.I.R. Fellow, Lauren Simkin Berke.Galeria Fucares Madrid announces its fifth show of Spanish/American artist Maggie Cardelus (Virginia, USA, 1962) in which she continues her exploration of the family photographic album. In this show the artist has expanded the photographic album to include the universe itself, as it unfolds in the domestic. A few women artists and writers have been working out how to be a mother and develop their art in a self-conscious way since the 1960’s. Maggie Cardelus is proposing a way to be in this world as both artist and mother, sacrificing neither.

In order for the mother/artist to survive, she must transform her world, however small, into the entire universe and more. She knows, of course, that this is an illusion, a strategy, a survival mechanism. She knows, of course, that all artists/all people at all times participate in their own seduction at the hands of their chosen passion, hobby, occupation, obsession, belief, whatever gives meaning and heft to their lives.
