This is the first survey exhibition of Brooklyn, New York-based artist Natalie Frank’s (Austin, Texas, b. 1980) drawings inspired by some of the best-known and most controversial literary narratives. Spanning a decade of Frank’s feminist drawing practice, “Unbound” presents work from the artist’s four major drawing series, each of which is the result of Frank’s rigorous research. “Fairy tales captivated me because many began as women’s oral tales that articulated female desires and fears,” says Frank. “Yet over time their authorship was erased and their voices neutered. I restore the identities of these overlooked female artists and transform their stories to create contemporary, paradigm-breaking female heroines.” Frank’s practice, in dialogue with worldwide conversations about agency, power, gender, and the #MeTOO and TIME’S UP movements, continues to raise questions of equity and advocacy for women’s voices. “We need to be asking questions in art,” says the artist. “And these are the kinds of questions we should be asking.
