Deena Altman Unravels The Narrative Of Women In A Society Of Cultural Blindness At OMA

Despite an increase in gender equality, there is still a cultural blindness where women subtly succumb to a second-class life. Deena Altman explores this unspoken challenge in a women’s life in Oceanside Museum of Art’s upcoming art exhibition, Deena Altman: Female Rising.

Deena Altman: Female Rising Soon To Open At Oceanside Museum

The eight-part series depicts the life of women from toddler to elder, with each piece highlighting each stage of the female experience and the responses to societal pressure. Deena Altman: Female Rising will be open to the public on Saturday, September 23 through Sunday, February 4, 2024.

This watercolor series unravels the narrative of women throughout their lives in a society where everyone, knowingly or not, contributes to suffering that binds their growth and development. With each era occupying a different canvas, the exhibit gives us a glimpse into the experiences and challenges that both impair and energize their paths.

Depicted in powerful surreal realism is a dynamic and heroic toddler, a teen struggling to show her true colors, a pregnancy affecting a woman’s sense of individuality, and a wise, older woman baring her heart to reach and nourish all she touches.
