MFA Photo/Video alumni Cat Del Buono is featured in this year's EVERY WOMAN BIENNIAL, an all woman and women-identified art biennial founded and curated by C. Finley. What began as the Whitney Houston Biennial, a wild one-night event of art and performance celebrating women in 2014, and expanded to a two-week exhibition in 2017 in the awakening of the #MeToo movement, will present its third iteration, titled Every Woman Biennial, from May 20 - May 29 in NY, and a sister biennial featuring LA-based artists June 2 - 12 in LA.
Opening Receptions for the Every Woman Biennial are as follows:
NYC: May 19th 1-4pm, La MaMa Galleria 47 Great Jones NYC SHOWS RUN May 20-29th 1-7pm everyday including memorial day
LOS ANGELES: June 2nd 4-7pm, Bendix Building 1206 Maple Ave LA SHOWS RUN June 3-12th 1-7pm
Del Buono's piece, entitled It's Time, blurs the line between photo and video by adding subtle movement within the image. The 1933 US Attorney's Office photo comes to life with the clock ticking in the background. The men in the featured photo seem to be stuck in time, perpetually waiting for the photo to be taken. Through ths work, Del Buono proposes a commentary on society being stuck in an era when white males hold the positions of power, begging the question: "When will the narrative move forward?"
Cat is also enjoying recent success with Our House Meridien, a free after-school arts program and community garden for local school children, which she recently launched in her hometown of Meriden, CT. Classes will be up and running by this fall with a Community Garden event on June 15th.
