Las Adelitas and Curious Myths

548 W. 28th Street, 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10001
July 10th – August 7th 2010

If your in New York this summer check out this exhibition. Las Adelitas – Like the exhibition title suggests, Ji’s fifteen, acrylic-on-panel portraits depict fierce and feminine soldaderas, the spiritual sisters of women who assisted and fought alongside troops in the Mexican Revolution and were immortalized in folksong with the corrido “La Adelita.”

Ji’s figures are warriors of sexual and moral ambiguity. With haunting and alluring beauty, they brim over melodramatically with a mix of sexual provocation and danger, as well as the threat of decay implicit in their skeletal markings.

What distinguishes Las Adelitas are the paintings’ uneasy admixture of the traditional and the contemporary.
