press release

In conjunction with the Sherman exhibition, the Contemporary is presenting Girls’ Night Out, also opening Friday, September 16. The acclaimed traveling exhibition, organized by the Orange County Museum of Art, features groundbreaking photography and video by two generations of female artists who embrace an evocative and poetic approach to female identity. Their work over the last decade shares themes such as youth culture, new notions of beauty, and a lyrical expression of the inner desires, dreams, and aspirations of their subjects. The historical context of this exhibition is found in the photography, film, and performance art of the 1970s and 1980s. Girls’ Night Out curator Elizabeth Armstrong and exhibiting artists Dorit Cypis, Katy Grannan, and Kelly Nipper, will attend the exhibition’s St. Louis opening.
