“Eternity, it is the voice of milk mingled with night...my text is written in white and black, in milk and night” wrote philosopher Hélene Cixous. It is through her penetrating metaphor that we attempt to lay out a framework beyond homogenizing, reductive reason.
Milk and Night is a group exhibition, which is the endeavor of four artists/curators, Anne Sherwood Pundyk, Coco Dolle, Katie Cercone, Asha Cherian; all of whom are involved in women’s collectives and impassioned by the intersections between art and feminism.
This show grows out of their feminist activity and gatherings undertaken over the past year: The Wolf Moon gathering at MoMA PS1, Sacred Nipples at the Last Brucennial and The Clitney Perennial at the Whitney Biennal.
"Stadia" Anne Sherwood Pundyk: Exhibition Catalogue
"Stadia" presents paintings by Anne Sherwood Pundyk and her dialogues with poet and critic Barry Schwabsky and artist and writer Kara L. Rooney. The works and conversations reveal Pundyk's traversal between her studio practice and collaborative exchanges. Color and gesture translate the artist's essential stories. Through her connections with other artists and her audience she looks to identify how these stories overlap with older tales, myths and fable. These works were shown at Susan Eley Fine Art, New York, NY in the winter of 2013.
Review of Postmasters Gallery show, "This is what sculpture looks like," In The Brooklyn Rail
To counter perceived favoritism toward the medium of painting at the expense of sculpture in the marketplace and in critical discourse, this entertaining show intends to even the score. Bluster is good for business, but the underdog stance of the work doesn’t come as much from it being sculpture as it does from being subversive. An equally good title would be This Is What Activist Art Looks Like.

4th Floor Skybridge, 65 W 11th Street and Klein Conference Room, 510, 66 W 12th Street
I am pleased to have work in "BEAVER exhibition | readings | performance | discussion" and participate in the group discussion.
Beaver is a multi-disciplinary exhibition, performance, and discussion delving into contemporary feminist perspectives on pornography, gender performance, and female sexual self-expression. Inspired by artist Naomi Elena Ramirez’s work of the same name which interrogates porn culture and female sexual expression through dance and visual scores for the body, this exhibition, curated by Ramirez and Kristen Sollee of the sex positive feminist site Slutist.com seeks to create discourse, awareness, and community.

Julie Higgonet Reviews "STADIA" New Work by Anne Sherwood Pundyk, in The Brooklyn Rail
Palimpsests, pentimenti, reflections, and layers reveal the underlying principle of this powerful show, a graphic lexicon served to express the profusion and intricacies of one’s world and thoughts and their evasive aspects.
"Stadia" reviewed in ARTslant by Elizabeth Sadoff
Sadoff observes, "Pundyk achieves a daring equilibrium in her paintings; disturbance goes hand in hand with overarching beauty. Ultimately, the elemental disquiet of her painted forms is tempered by a luscious reverence for flesh, for voluptuousness that speaks of a wholly feminine profile. "
