“Listen Darling… The World is Yours” at Ellipse Foundation Art Center in Lisbon, Portugal, brings together the work of over forty artists who together demonstrate the sweeping changes in the psycho-sexual dynamics of culture over the past thirty years. The exhibition, which revolves around several major works by Louise Bourgeois, Eija-Liisa Ahtila, and Shirin Neshat, among others, looks at how women see women, women see men, men see women and men see men, often through direct confrontation with sexuality and sexual politics. “Listen Darling…” reveals the strong infiltration of the woman’s voice in the art and culture of our time, as well as gay artists whose sexual identity is a deliberate part of their artistic statement.
The show is curated by Lisa Phillips, Director of the New Museum, New York.
