San Diego Art Institute Gives Female Artists the Reins

San Diego Art Institute indoor outdoor exhibition

This is San Diego artist Linda Litteral’s porcelain work, Armor: Protection Series #13. The bodice represents the mental shield she created to protect herself from memories of childhood abuse. The leaves represent where she found solace as a kid: climbing trees.

Litteral’s piece is just one of many on display at San Diego Art Institute’s Indoor/Outdoor exhibit, providing participating artists a platform to showcase work that alludes to how interior and exterior spaces have influenced their physical and psychological perspectives.

The show’s a bit of a sequel to Feminism Now, a traveling exhibit by female collectives Feminist Image Group of San Diego and Krogen Amerika of Sweden that went to San Diego, LA, and Stockholm last year. Which makes Indoor/Outdoor a mere neighborhood hop in comparison, kicking off with the San Diegans’ artwork at the Athenaeum Art Center in Logan Heights June 8 through July 2, followed by the Swedish artwork at SDAI in Balboa Park, from June 21 through July 7.
