Smut: The Vulnerability of Female Fantasy

New York, NY: TriBeCa Art Factory is pleased to announce an exhibition of the collaborative works of renowned New York art figures, Ariel ZB, Adriane Ayma and Anthony Frattin. SMUT explores the confrontation of female eroticism and female vulnerability along with the underlying unease of femininity and social conformity in a collection of portraits of fictional women. Depicted as comic book carnal heroines, each piece strikes a discordant note between highly sexual and empowering visuals and the causal vulnerabilities of each subject, elegantly put into words alongside each subject. The sartorial and grungy clash of aesthetics further amplifies the disarray of the modern concept of femininity. SMUT is a collaboration of paintings by Ariel ZB and Anthony Frattin with accompanying fictional biographic writings by Adriane Ayma. Ariel ZB creates the delicious and dark futuristic beauties while Frattin adds abstract colour and texture with paint, creating each unique piece which Ayma names and creates a short personal story for, resulting in an aesthetic and literary romp.

From the founders of The Collaborators: Live Art Show, the exhibition opening night is set to be an unprecedented experience of Ayma and Frattin’s radical brand of immersive art. A final piece, to complete the collection, will be created during the show, which Ayma will name and bring to life with words along with the promise of a highly provocative installation to the theme of SMUT throughout the night. Guests will be engrossed in a multi sensory fusion of the realms of the artist and viewer, colliding both worlds to create a show reminiscent of the defining age when Warhol and Basquiat sauntered the streets of New York and shook down the art world.
