JUNE 22, 23, 24 2018, THE LIVING GALLERY OUTPOST 246 E 4th St, New York, NY, presented in association with LEXICONMAG.com

Stephen Romano Gallery is pleased to present "GENUS SORORUM" in association with The Living Gallery Outpost in New York's Lower East Side, an exhibition of images and works by artists which deal with themes of witchcraft, magic, esoterica, alchemy, spells, conjuring, divination, incantation, necromancy, occultism, theosophy, prophecy, soothsaying, sorcery, thaumaturgy, voodoo, abracadabra and hocus-pocus, all for the purpose of opening your third eye.

All of the living artists in the exhibition are women. Any other objects or ephemera are by deceased or unknown makers who are presumed deceased.

“I think that all women are witches, in the sense that a witch is a magical being. And a wizard, which is a male version of a witch, is kind of revered, and people respect wizards. But a witch, my god, we have to burn them. It’s the male chauvinistic society that we’re living in for the longest time, 3,000 years or whatever. And so I just wanted to point out the fact that men and women are magical beings. We are very blessed that way, so I’m just bringing that out. Don’t be scared of witches, because we are good witches, and you should appreciate our magical power.” Yoko Ono.

Participating artist Alexis Palmer Karl said of the exhibition "There are works, that when shown together, become a living breathing entity: the parts of the whole corresponding in form and spirit with one another. This is so with Genus Sorurum, where the thirteen artists define all that it means to exist in this world as a woman; illustrating the passage of life itself, from the geometric perfection of our very beginnings, to the stark resonance of our impending mortality. The artists illustrate the passage of time and ultimate magic of existence. The works are spells, sacred and shamanic in their feminine presence, while effectively drawing forth each artist into the realm of the immortal as they persistently echo into our future…calling. “Look! I am here!”
