Painting and gender equity in the contemporary art world
In her current body of work, Danielle Mysliwiec creates abstract oil paintings which present themselves as intricately woven surfaces that are at once coming together and coming undone. In addition to being a painter, Mysliwiec cofounded a feminist performance group called Brainstormers in 2005, which challenges gender discrimination in the art world. She has exhibited her work with various galleries and museums including Baer Ridgway Exhibitions, Galeria Marta Cervera, The Peter Fingestin Gallery, Momenta Art, The Brooklyn Museum, and the Bronx Museum of the Arts. Mysliwiec has received awards and residencies from the Puffin Foundation and the Vermont Studio Center. Her work has been reviewed in publications including The Brooklyn Rail, ArtNews, Art Fag City, NYFA Current, and Artnet. She has held teaching positions at Hunter College, the School of Visual Arts, Yale University, and San Francisco State University.
