Opening: Judith Linhares at P.P.O.W.
In her first solo exhibition since being added to P.P.O.W.’s roster, Judith Linhares offers paintings that imagine a universe without men. Blending various elements of Abstract Expressionism and Bay Area figuration, the works in “Hearts on Fire” show nude women, various creatures, and flowers in fantastical, vibrant settings. The elongated bodies pictured in these pieces seem to inhabit a harmonious, primeval world, undisturbed by the patriarchal structures that govern ours.
P.P.O.W., 535 West 22nd Street, 6–8 p.m.
