Patricia Schnall Gutierrez's Housewife Diaries at 6th Street Container

Through May 16, 2015

Schnall Gutierrez’s multimedia work is rich with psychological and intellectual references that is dedicated to issues of the feminine condition. In this current exhibition, the artist takes her inspiration from the1970 comedy-drama film, Diary of a Mad Housewife, and parallels memories and experiences of her own world as a young women in the same era.

In this recent project, Schnall Gutierrez insists on creating a dialogue through her use of sculptural ob- jects, digital photographs and installations that speak much more than they initially suggest. Her obses- sion and reference to doing household chores such as laundry and cleaning and all the while simultane- ously playing the role of sex object, continues as it has in so many previous works.

Patricia Schnall Gutierrez lives in Miami and has her studio in The Fountainhead. She has exhibited in numerous museums including: The Naples Museum of Art, Appleton Museum of Art, Boca Museum of Art, Museum of Florida Art, Lowe Art Museum, as well as Uni- versity exhibitions in and outside of Florida. Her work has been selected and showcased in private Sotheby’s auction at the Margulies Collection at the Warehouse and she has received awards from the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs Artist Access Grant and the Florida Department of State/Division of Cultural Affairs Visual Arts Fellowship. Most recently, she was invited to be part of the Brooklyn Museum – Elizabeth A. Sackler Center For Feminist Art. Her work continues through various residency programs and is part of collections world wide.
