ANDOVER, MA.- The Addison Gallery presents Girls' Night Out through April 3, 2005. Girls' Night Out presents photography and video made over the last decade by ten female artists from different countries and generations. Although influenced by art of the 1970sand 1980s that addressed issues of gender through satire or stereotypes, these artists use a more open approach characterized by subjectivity and directness. Exploring themes such as the passage from girlhood to womanhood and notions of beauty, these artists confidently explore female identity without needing to challenge or critique feminine stereotypes. In these diverse works the idea girl goes beyond gender to embody a mixture of vulnerability and unbounded potential that is universal. Girls' Night Out was organized by the Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach, California. The exhibition is presented by Neutrogena. Additional support has been provided by James B. Pick and Rosalyn M. Laudati, Joan and Don Beall, Visionaries, LEF Foundation, the Women's Consortium of the Orange County Museum of Art, Christine and Jeff Masonek, FRAME Finnish Fund for Art Exchange, Patricia and Max Ellis, Anita Kunin Fund of The Minneapolis Foundation, The Consulate General of the Netherlands in Los Angeles, and an anonymous donor.
