Beige Recommends: Judith Bernstein in Conversation with Sarah McCrory
In anticipation of her inclusion in the exhibition Keep Your Timber Limber (Works on Paper), artist Judith Bernstein discusses her work and practice with the exhibition curator Sarah McCrory.
Born in 1942 in Newark, New Jersey, Judith Bernstein has lived and worked in New York city since 1967. Exhibiting at Mitchell Algus Gallery, New York (2008), The Box, Los Angeles (2009 and 2011), and Alex Zachary, New York (2010).
Bernstein was a founding member of A.I.R. Gallery (the first gallery devoted to showing female artists) where she had her first solo exhibition in 1973. She was an early member of many art and activist organisations including Guerilla Girls, Art Workers’ Coalition, and Fight Censorship. Keep Your Timber Limber (Works on Paper) explores how artists since the 1940s to the present day have used drawing to address ideas critical and current to their time, ranging from the politics of gender and sexuality to feminist issues, war, censorship and race.
