Beginning January 26, we invite you to stream Eve Fowler’s with it which it as it if it is to be, Part II (2019, 34 min.). This film is the second installment in Eve Fowler’s planned ten-part video series that explores the working practices of women artists in their later years of their career, in their studios, interacting with their art. In this collaborative work, Fowler visits the studios of women artists in New York City and Los Angeles. The soundtrack consists of different artists and writers reading Gertrude Stein’s 1910 story Many Many Women. The repetitive stream of consciousness oration is hypnotic and provocative in its consideration of the lives and works of these prolific artists.

The film, which will be available to stream through February 7, is presented in conjunction with Never Done: 100 Years of Women in Politics and Beyond, and as part of the Whole Grain: Experiments in Film & Video series.

About the Artist

Eve Fowler (b. 1964, Philadelphia, PA) creates work concerned with the power of words, language, and cultural biases as those topics relate to gender politics and queerness. Her two-dimensional works take the form of billboards, posters, prints, and signs, using mediums such as neon, paint, and vinyl. She also creates installations, films, and sound pieces, often resulting from collaborations with other artists, filmmakers, and writers. Fowler lives and works in Los Angeles, California. A graduate of Temple University (BA, 1986), and Yale University (MFA, 1992), Fowler has had solo exhibitions at DCA Scotland; Participant Inc, New York; and ArtSpace, Sydney, Australia. Her books include Anyone Telling Anything Is Telling That Thing (2013) and Hustlers (2014). Her work is in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; The Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco; The New Museum, New York; and The Smithsonian Institute, Washington, D.C. Fowler organizes Artist Curated Projects in Los Angeles and is a recipient of a 2017 Art Matters grant and was a Radcliffe Institute Fellow (2019).
