DCA is delighted to be presenting the first major European exhibition of American artist Eve Fowler's work during the summer of 2018. Having exhibited widely over the past two decades in the US, Fowler is one of the most significant artists of her generation, using art and language to disrupt and unsettle the dominant power structures that control much of the world around us.
This exhibition will reflect and further expand on the artist's intense and intimate feminist engagement with the words of Gertrude Stein over the past eight years. Since 2010, Fowler has created an immensely beautiful body of work centred on Stein's expansive writing practice, taking the form of posters, prints, billboards, paintings, and installations employing materials such as vinyl, neon, collage, print, painting and film. In speaking about the artist and her linguistic obsession, writer Litia Perta has commented that 'across a distance of nearly a century, Fowler's work literally commingles with Stein's: gets close to it, pulls strands out, knits phrases back in, asks us to be near it, to think toward it."
Fowler's work will fill DCA's expansive galleries over the summer and also reach beyond the walls of the institution to appear in public spaces across Dundee and further afield, punctuating and queering the Scottish landscape with Stein's prescient words.
There will also be a significant new publication produced as part of the project, gathering together a new community of artistic voices to develop texts and poetic responses to Eve's work.
