closing Apr 27 w/ reception 4-6p:“Doomed to Win, Paintings from the Early 80’s” Susan Bee A.I.R. Gallery, 111 Front St, Brooklyn, NY (#228)in collaboration with Accola GriefenBee’s early 80s paintings examine gender roles through a potent synthesis of competing modes of figurative representation, along with provocative art historical and pop cultural allusions. The show’s title comes from a 1983 work, Doomed to Win, which, like many of Bee’s recent paintings, is based on a film still, in this case a 1931 film of the same name. While the original still features a boxer hemmed in by a male manager and referee, Bee’s composition re-imagines the scene with a female protagonist. Addressing the generation of women between the second and third wave of feminism in the United States, Mira Schor writes: “Doomed to Win… is eerily predictive of generation 2.5’s complex role and the endurance that it may need for the fight: the anxious but tough young fighter in a pink dress will need all the strength and help she can get.”
