Binder of Women is an artist-run project creating a collective folio of limited edition works. Artists Hayley Barker, Michelle Blade, Claire Colette, Jamie Felton, Kysa Johnson, Lindsey Lyons, Maysha Mohamedi, Erin Morrison, Laurie Nye, and Hilary Pecis have contributed small-scale works on paper ranging from representational and unique paintings to abstract and gestural forms with pressed paper for this first release. The project offers twenty limited edition sets containing a signed work by each of the ten artists.
Conceptualized in Los Angeles this year by painter Hilary Pecis, Binder of Women is an independent platform for contemporary artists to directly share their work as they see fit. This is a unified move to empower female artists, expand their reach, broach the topic of equality and consent in the art world, and take action to grow the number of works by female identifying artists in contemporary art collections.
