▪ Frost Art Museum’s special series, “The Summer of Women,” culminates June 18 with works by six renowned artists from the de la Cruz Collection in the Design District: Tracey Emin (London); Susanne M. Winterling (Berlin/Oslo); Sarah Morris (New York); Aida Ruilova (New York); Quisqueya Henriquez (Cuba); and Beatriz Monteavaro (Cuba/Miami). The opening of “Resonance/Dissonance: Video Works by Women Artists” is from 4 to 7 p.m. at the museum and will be on view through Sept. 18. “Women artists are still woefully underrepresented in the museum world,” said Frost Director Dr. Jordana Pomeroy. “[This exhibit] highlights nine women artists, whose reputations are emerging or world renowned, as well as a sophisticated collector in Rosa de la Cruz. Seen together, the exhibitions engage the viewer in a multi-sensorial experience.” These artists have utilized the range of video’s artistic potential to explore themes of gender, violence, sexuality, the body, and popular culture.
