Top 10 list by Katie Geha!

8. Women and Their Work, Margaret Meehan Hystrionics and the Forgotten Arm

In this exhibition, Meehan wove a dense tale into her objects, photographs, and installations. But beyond the back stories (see: Victorian Pugilism, boxing, The Circassian beauties, and medical anomalies), I don’t think I saw a more elegantly installed exhibition all year. And that’s saying a lot, considering the gallery at Women and Their Work often feels stilted and constricting. Meehan essentially created a dramatic stage-set for both her works and the story she was longing to tell. Many Thanks to Katie Geha’s on Glasstire.com for including me in an amazing list of artists.
