Ballast Projects, in collaboration with curator Adam G. Mignanelli will mount an art show entitled Mutability,presenting a cacophonous dialogue between works rendered by an exclusively all-female cast. This young generation of artists - Hallberg, Moseley, Lee, and Shulze - heroically rupture the typical narrative of societal constructs primarily, to infuse bold acquisitions and eye-dotting patterns within their illustrative subversions. The common thread interlocking all four bystanders is subtle, yet alarming within the breadth of abstract expressionist obstructions. Through their works they are able to unapologetically fend off the traditional dogmas of gender ideals that undeniably exists at the apex of today’s contemporary art; it’s a hypothetical face off between conventional and experimental taste, as applied to the ideals of form and function, conception and cunning game.
