Femina Potens Gallery
465 S. Van Ness at 16th St.
Featuring film and photography by Natalia Leite and
Short films by Amy Harrison.
Additional artists TBA
Displacement, cultural identity, and the fluidity of meaning are the focus of a collection of photographs by artist Natalia Leite on exhibit at Femina Potens Gallery from January 21st-26, 2006. An abstract narrative investigates the complexity of binary oppositions; a study of how their relationships create and alter their significance in indefinable, ambiguous ways.
Femina Potens invites the community to a free closing reception with the Leite on Thursday, January 26th, 7-10pm at Femina Potens Gallery.
Natalia Cerqueira Leite grew up in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and moved to San Francisco in 2002. In the past three years, she has accomplished several short videos and films, most of which are staged and performed by herself. In 2003 she won the Kodak Grant Award, which has helped her continue to fund her own work.
Femina Potens is a nationally recognized art gallery and performance space dedicated to the advancement of women and trans-folk through art. Sponsored by Sister Spit and the Queer Cultural Center, with support from the San Francisco Arts Commission and the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Femina Potens is one of the leading queer organizations in San Francisco. Femina Potens has been featured on the Australian television show, Out and About, Q-Television, the documentary TranArchy, Japan's Foil Magazine, Bitch Magazine, and the San Francisco Guardian, which called Femina Potens a crucial bit of justice.
