Excerpts from the MAC – Dallas: Mary Beth Edelson and Molly Gochman
Excerpts from the McKinney Avenue Contemporary’s more comphrensive exhibitions, There is Never Only One Game in Town, work by Mary Beth Edelson and Other Stories, work by Molly Gochman, on view at the MAC through December 11th. Mary Beth Edelson, emerged in the 1960s on New York’s SoHO scene as a groundbreaking feminist artist. Noted is most art history books, her conceptually-based work activates a variety of women’s and human rights issues. She has worked in collaborative and/or political environments, participating in the early exhibitions at A.I.R. Gallery (founded in 1972), taking part in the Heresies Collective, and helping to lead the Women’s Action Coalition,1992–1994. Her work has been exhibited around the world and she is represented in major collections such as MoMA and the Guggenheim Museum of Art in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington DC and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. Molly Gochman, a Houston- and New York-based younger artist, formulates ideas of community and subjective interconnectedness in her growing oeuvre, characterized by fluid visuality and the use of multiple media. From her dual bases in Houston and New York, Molly Gochman has created a diverse portfolio of work that is both personal and philosophical – a contemplation on concepts of interest, like time and change, value, love relationships, and balance. Since 2002, Gochman has exhibited widely in galleries and public spaces such as the Lincoln Center and the Emily Harvey Foundation in New York, the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts, Deborah Colton Gallery, and DiverseWorks in Houston, and the Sara Roney Gallery in Sydney, Australia. Molly Gochman was well received at the Colton & Farb Gallery Dallas Art Fair Exhibition and is in many important collections.
