NXTHVN’s debut booth at Untitled Art’s ‘Nest’ sector, will feature the artwork of two of its woman-identified alumnae, Alyssa Klauer (Cohort 03) and Anindita Dutta (Cohort 04). These artists use their practices to critique ideas around femininity and sexuality. Alyssa Klauer’s paintings meditate on girlhood in tandem with queerness and coming out late in life. Anindita Dutta’s multi-media shoe sculptures tease our fetishistic desires while advocating for agency and gender equality. Both Klauer and Dutta show us how the feminine dimension is a powerful source of strength and liberation that transforms sadness, trauma, and violence into expressions of beauty, wonder and playful delight.
In addition to the partnership with Untitled Art, NXTHVN will also participate in Untitled Art Podcast panel discussion on December 6 at 2PM, titled “Art Unveiled: Navigating the Ecosystem of Creativity.” NXTVHN alumni Jeffrey Meris, Alyssa Klauer and Marissa Del Toro will engage in a dynamic dialogue sharing their creative journeys since completing their respective NXTHVN Fellowships in 2021 and 2022. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about their post-fellowship experiences and how they navigate the vibrant art ecosystem, as well as their ever-evolving expressions of artistic liberation.
