Alix Pearlstein's Harem ROOM-1 and Two Women reviewed by Artforum

Alix Pearlstein's recent exhibition at Upfor, Harem ROOM-1 and Two Women, was reviewed by Jon Raymond in the recently released May issue of Artforum, available now to subscribers online. If you would like to read the review in PDF form, please email us at welcome@upforgallery.com.

In these exceedingly vulgar times, feminists have been forced to develop an array of responses to daily onslaughts of abuse, some blunt, some subtle. Alix Pearlstein’s recent show at Upfor offered a particularly sophisticated take on contemporary power dynamics, in the form of an installation ringing with implacable ontological implications about gender and society that will, sadly, probably still be relevant a hundred years from now.
