This exhibition features works by eleven contemporary artists from around the globe to explore how these individuals engage with topics such as resilience, strength, labor, women’s rights, and queer aesthetics through athletic imagery. It also queries preconceived notions of femininity through a range of conceptual approaches, be they celebratory, humorous, or critical.

Artists featured in this exhibition are Bianca Argimón, Libby Black, Zoe Buckman, Monica Garza, Riikka Hyvonen, Sophie Kirchner, Eddie Lanieri, Hazel Meyer, Fay Sanders, Sheena Rose, and Kawita Vatanajyankur.

She’s a Knockout is curated by the Lowe’s Curator of Collections and Exhibitions, Caitlin Swindell.
