#sweetjane

ONE EXHIBITION IN TWO PARTS
Pitzer College Art Galleries
January 21-March 28, 2014

Pomona College Museum of Art
January 21-April 13, 2014

The exhibition “#sweetjane” includes new work by Los Angeles-based artist Andrea Bowers that examines the notorious Steubenville, Ohio, high school rape case. In addition to a new series of drawings, “#sweetjane” comprises a video based on Bowers’s three trips to Steubenville that documents the protest surrounding the trial and activities of “hacktivist” group Anonymous. Her return to Ohio to document the Steubenville case is a form of personal mapping of thirty years of violence against women.

The exhibition unfolds over two campuses and is the second collaborative project between the Pomona College Museum of Art and the Pitzer College Art Galleries.
