In her latest piece for L.A. Weekly, editor Shana Nys Dambrot visits the Cantos of the Sibylline Sisterhood exhibit at Los Angeles’ Alyce de Roulet Williamson Gallery on the ArtCenter College of Design Hillside Campus. On view through November 23, 2022, the exhibit features feminist, queer and trans artists who bring their vision to life through a range of artistic mediums, producing unique interpretations of the exhibit’s theme of juxtaposing historical archetypes of the feminine against modern day threats. 

“In the many crosscurrents of theme, motif, material and symbolism, the group does function like a sisterhood, as each artist addresses interrelated issues of permeable identity and power dynamics playing out in their diverse cultural milieus and lived experiences, as well as in their individual styles and mediums,” writes Dambrot. “One thing they share is the understanding that the current halls of power could use some renovation, and that it’s long past time to listen to women — or better yet, lose the stunted binary and embrace a more ambiguous pluri-potentiality for a future that is actually new, and whose freedoms are truly available to all.”
