Cantos of the Sibylline Sisterhood

On view through October 2, 2022

Featuring artists using science fiction, fantasy, spirituality, and mythology as grounds for the investigation of identity and agency. The works in this exhibition navigate a means out of, or parallel to, the many iterations of marginalized identities that are part of our history, present and future.

Based on the premise of sibyls – women throughout history known to foretell the future – the artists included in Cantos of the Sibylline Sisterhood may be regarded as cultural sibyls. They reimagine identities as central and empowered beings, speculating on future cultural conditions. They also eschew binary, oppositional positions for fluctuating and situational platforms that allow for slippages, unfixed expressions, and alternate meanings. In their varied explorations of power and identity, these artists critique and often create new realities.


This exhibition is supported in part by a grant from the Pasadena Art Alliance.
