“Vikky Alexander, The Temptations of St. Anthony: Vancouver-based Alexander was a young artist in New York in the ’80s when eventual bigshots like Barbara Kruger, Sherrie Levine and Richard Prince began their aggressive appropriations of mass-media and advertising imagery as a strident kind of social critique. Alexander’s contribution to the burgeoning scene, of which she was part, included images recast from fashion magazines in which the overt sexuality of the female subjects were recalibrated to discomfit and confound: Enlargements, blunt crop-jobs and mirror images use the pictures as the women they portrayed already had been: As objects to convey a certain – in this case, very different – point of view.”

-Murray Whyte

Gallery artist Davida Nemeroff’s exhibition Connective Tissues at 8-11 was also featured in the article.
