Exhibition Curator: Carla Della Beffa
Accepting your mature body requires courage. For Graupe-Pillard, showing it in her works is a means of questioning the given ideas about femininity, art, society, and is more than many artists would be able and willing to do. And she does it with humor, a great passion for art and her brilliant knowledge of it. Grace Delving into Art can be seen as a series of art history lessons that won't be easily forgotten. As Robert Mahoney (article on Yahoo, 2013) wrote: “By her posture, her pose...she makes a statement about the art. It's an art review by an artist using her body and not her voice.”
A curatorial essay by Carla Della Beffa provides a rich context for understanding Graupe-Pillard’s work.
