MarinMOCA presents: M. Louise Stanley: No Regrets, 50 Years of Art and Activism. Ms. Stanley is best known for her humorous narrative style, inspired by Western Art history and Greek mythology. Since the beginning of her career in the 1970s, Ms. Stanley has tackled the thorny issues of our time–gender inequality, corporate malfeasance, social justice, and all-around bad behavior. Given the current socio-political environment, viewers will appreciate her bold work which treats difficult subjects with wit and insight. Ms. Stanley’s paintings and journals are filled with lush color, and rich, historically-accurate references. Spanning five decades, the exhibition will include paintings shown together for the first time, as well as presenting never-before exhibited works. A selection of her art journals and protest signs will also be on view.
“In this retrospective exhibition of works selected from fifty years of M. Louise Stanley’s career as commentator on the human comedy, both the artist’s wit and her prodigious gift for renovating the history of art are on full view,” states Maria Porges, author of the exhibition catalog essay.
Marin Museum of Contemporary Art is located at 500 Palm Drive in Novato, California.
