Panmela Castro (Anarkia Boladona)

The Myth

Curated by Jessica N. Pabón

Opening Reception: June 26, 2012

June 26–July 26, 2012

Inspired by the classic existentialist text The Second Sex (Le Deuxième Sexe) by French feminist scholar Simone de Beauvoir, Brazilian graffiti artist Anarkia Boladona’s exhibition The Myth interprets the various stereotypes mythologizing the female “other.” Focusing on the relationship between sexuality and gender, Boladona depicts recognizable religious figures (such as Eve), and then counters, complicates, and compliments them with empowering mythological figures of her own creation.

Panmela Castro is an activist artist whose social policy work, primarily focused on gender equality, provides the core inspiration for the content of her provocative paintings. With her work, Castro challenges patriarchal notions of public space as related to sexism, sexuality, subjectivity, and power relations. She has a BFA from the School of Fine Arts at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and is currently in the Master of Arts program at the State University of Rio de Janeiro. She has received numerous awards including the Hutúz Prize for Graffiti Artist of the Decade, the 2012 Diller-von Furstenberg Family Foundation Award for Extraordinary Women, and the Vital Voices Global Leadership Human Rights Award. In 2012, Newsweek Magazine nominated Panmela, alongisde Brazilian President Dilma Roussef, as one of the “150 Women Shaking the World.” With years of experience writing graffiti and fighting for women’s rights, Panmela has been invited to paint in cities across the globe, including but not limited to: Berlin, Istanbul, Johannesburg, Paris, Prague, New York, and Toronto. www.panmelacastro.com. Castro is the Founder and President of Rede Nami, a feminist urban arts network in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Rede Nami seeks to promote human rights whilst, and by, strengthening the artistic, intellectual, and professional skills of women living in favelas.
