Dutch Art at Armory Art Week and VOLTA 2020

Dutch Culture USA, March 4, 2020

The Cynthia Corbett gallery presents Isabelle van Zeijl: “In a contemporary art world that condemns beauty as camouflage for conceptual shallowness, championing high aesthetics is nothing short of rebellion. Van Zeijl takes female beauty ideals from the past, and sabotages them in the context of today.As a woman she experiences prejudices against women; misogyny in numerous ways including sex discrimination, belittling/violence against women and sexual objectification. Van Zeijl aestheticises these prejudices in her work to visually discuss this troubling dichotomy, presenting a new way of seeing female beauty. An oppressive idealization of beauty is tackled in her work through unique female character and emotion.”
