Lichtundfire is pleased to present I AM A WOMAN, a group exhibition and special project by MAKESHIFT MUSEUM @ Lichtundfire, and curated by Noah Becker, Terrence Sanders-Smith & Dr. Milagros Bello.

From The Curators’ Statement:
“I AM A WOMAN is making a statement but from a discourse of strength proliferated from overcoming. A collective effort of engagement as women in the tough balancing placement we experienced simultaneously with/without/within the establishment – confident in our own value and bringing forth art as a result of that resilience in the face of adversity.”

Interview published in Whitehot Magazine (July 2019)

“In art, we can move away from the literal and find poetic or non-linear modes of expression. As opposed to making a show a reactionary show, steeped in current politics, I wanted to present something different with my co-curators. The artists in this show are from my perspective on par with any of the great artists of history.”
