So everything is clear: This account is a free space to share your frustration, your love, your lust, your infatuation, your anger, your unrequited love letters, the words you’d wished you said, the perfect come back to someone who’s crushed you, your missed opportunities and unresolved conflicts. However. This will not become a space to publicly and freely harm people. Everything must remain completely anonymous. I will personally make sure that each post in as anonymous as possible and will be moderating comments to ensure this space stays free and without limits, but also SAFE. The point of Kris Kraus’s letters in the book were not to harm Dick. The point was her unresolved conflict, her love, her desire and her mind. #womensrights#women#strongwomen#art#womeninart#love#lust#conflict#writing#novel#safespace#ilovedick#kriskraus#deardick#poetry#modernart#anonymous#anon#feminist#feminism

In 1997 Kris Kraus wrote a ground breaking novel - “I Love Dick”. Speaking of love, lust, infatuation and desire. But also questioning our place in today’s world as women and in our place in art. In the novel, Kris, married to Sylvestre, falls in love with Dick. Throughout the novel, we explore love and lust through the eyes of many, and the struggle to express something that words seem to not quite capture. Kris Kraus ended up perfecting this by allowing the main character to write letters to the object of her desires. Published well before it’s time, this beautiful book inspired me to start and account with short texts and letters sent in anonymously. To be able to address the “Dicks” in our lives and perhaps share with others feelings we thought we never could. #womensrights#women#strongwomen#art#womeninart#love#lust#conflict#writing#novel#safespace#ilovedick#kriskraus#deardick#poetry#modernart#anonymous#anon#feminist#feminism
True freedom begins the moment you have nothing to hide. I have struggled with finding my own voice and style in the creative field. There were times when I felt I was too timid, fearing what others might say about my artwork and style. Although It’s a continuous struggle between strength and insecurity I found that it’s best to be your true self and embrace who you are.
Paint away your problems, your sins, your feelings you don’t care for anymore. Just loose it and let it melt away. Lots of mess on stories, keeping me distracted while our little foster pup Rolo has surgery.

Félicie De Fauveau defendeu o renascimento da arte medieval. Nascida na Toscana em 1799, passou sua infância em Florença antes de se mudar para a França no auge do período da Restauração, onde aprendeu a arte da pintura e da escultura, além de estudar heráldica e arqueologia. Apoiada pela duquesa de Berry, ela foi a primeira mulher a expor no Salão em 1827, onde inspirou os escritos de Alexandre Dumas e Stendhal. Um feroz legitimista, De Fauveau foi preso em Angers e posteriormente exilado da França por participar do movimento monarquista de insurreição em 1832. Depois de ser forçada pelas autoridades a desmantelar seu ateliê em Paris, ela se juntou a sua mãe em Florença em 1834, estabelecendo um ateliê de sucesso.(...) Seu monumento a Dante, concluído em 1836, prefigurava as Portas do Inferno, de Auguste Rodin.

Women Transformed through Art & Opera. People in authority don’t deserve anything they demand of you. I’m a woman currently studying Philosophy, Art History, and Music at the graduate level. With two liberal arts degrees already, it’s safe to say I’ve been interested in the arts for quite some time. I’ve always enjoyed visual art and opera (looking forward to the two Don Giovanni performances by the HGO that I’ll be attending this season) but it’s not always an easy topic to talk about. Don Giovanni is especially messy. Some of the characters are strong willed, others not so much, some have come to self realizations, others don’t do much reflecting at all. & Don Giovanni himself. A true serious character with gorgeously complicated music while also being flawlessly able to integrate himself with the low music of the lower classes. The genius of it is that the character is problematic even in 2019. The opera can allow for conversation about issues that are still faced now: questions of authority, gender, class, and faith are all still relevant today. The MFAH focused on the women in Don Giovanni. Gwendolyn Alfred as Donnaa Anna stands next to an Orazio Gentileschi painting of his daughter Artemisia Gentileschi titled Portrait of a Young Woman as a Sibyl (Oil in Canvas; c.1620). Next is Alisa Magallón as Donna Elvira next to Henri Matisse’s Woman in a Purple Coat (Oil on Canvas; 1937), a painting of Lydia Delectorskaya. Finally are two pictures of Cecilia Duarte (@cecilia_duarte_mezzo_soprano)as Zerlina next to Amalia Mesa-Bains’s Transparent Migrations (Mirrored armoire, 16 Glass leaves, wide armatures, small glaze dress, lace mantilla, assorted crystal miniatures, shattered safety glass; 2001). A wonderful interactive lecture by Luann Turley (I even spoke!) followed by a sung aria accompanied by Kirin Kuzmin on piano. Just astonishing how these four pieces of art can come together in such a fruitful way. Truly a sublime performance. I
Had such a beyond awesome morning with @urbanistguide & @midcenturystore 🌿 My goal when being invited into someone’s space is to leave something behind. For me, it was to draw a piece based on my budding relationship with the people and the experience I had being in their natural habitat. However you interpret this, Leave gifts when you can. Leave a little bit of yourself while you can for the people that truly deserve it. Whether that’s a word, a physical thing, or a moment for them to witness something. It’s all important. #art#drawing#ink#penandink#womeninart#urbanistguide#midcentury#sandiego#people#maryjhun#midcenturymodern#sdart#sdartist#women
With art perspectives we create a modern culture platform in order to connect people from various areas such as fashion, design, technology as well as entrepreneurship. On top of that, we want to give women the chance to become a bigger part of the art scene. We are convinced that everyone can invest in art created by female artists - there is no need to spend huge amounts of money but love and passion! #investinwomenartists#foreignaffairs#womeninart#capitalmagazin#art#galleryweekendberlin2019#artperspectives#capitalmagazine#inpactmedia#galleryweekend#art#artist#arts#artoftheday#creative#painting#artwork#artgallery#instagramart#inspiration#artinspo#artfeed#artnews#artdealer#artlover#artscene#femaleempowerment#strongwomen#confidentwomen#berlin#urbanart#artperspectives
As time goes on the world would know the importance of “woman” in all aspect of life. I read a post on @instablog9ja the writer claims, “women who earn more than their spouse or become the breadwinners of the family would lack submission and are arrogant”. I don’t understand that. But this is what I know: Dear Queen 👸🏾, You deserve the peak of your career. You deserve equal opportunities. You deserve a good partner. You deserve a standing ovation and most importantly, you deserve self love. I am proud of you. Don’t feel threatened by the amount of men in the room #womeninscience Don’t be angry when they call you nurse #womenmedicaldoctors Don’t be angry when they say women don’t hold such positions #womenforpresident Don’t be angry when they don’t value your teaching #womenineducation Don’t be angry when they think your body is doing your work #womeninmarketing#womeninbanking#womeninmedia#womeninfluencers Don’t be angry when they act like your opinions are unrealistic #womeninphilosophy#womeninart#womeninhistory#womenineconomics Don’t be angry when they call you housewife #nursingmom Don’t be angry when they tease you because you have a child and not married #singlemom#widow#coparenting Don’t be angry if they say you are too weak to play #womeninsports The world isn’t use to it but we are giving them no excuses. ✊🏾we taking over #unstoppable
