Dotty Attie - Artists - PPOW

Dotty Attie
Photo by Grace Roselli, Pandora's BoxX Project

For over five decades Dotty Attie (b. 1938) has rigorously engaged the grid as a formal and conceptual tool. Her cadenced rows of 6 x 6-inch canvases employ strategies of minimalism, appropriation, and feminism by decontextualizing and sequencing canonical Old Master paintings, Modern photographs, and Hollywood promotional imagery. Attie then bookends or interviews bold-faced text panels that annotate her evocative images with sardonic narration. Populated with heroes, villains and everyone in between, Attie’s witty tales of crime and punishment imbue even the most neutral images with eroticism, violence and psychological imbalance. Attie was born in Pennsauken, New Jersey and lives and works in New York City. She received a BFA from the Philadelphia College of Art (1959), a Beckmann Fellowship at the Brooklyn Museum of Art School, New York (1960) and attended the Art Students League, New York (1967). She is one of the founding members of A.I.R. Gallery, the first all-female cooperative artist’s gallery, founded in 1972. At A.I.R. Gallery, where she held seven solo exhibitions from 1972–1986, Attie exhibited works executed exclusively in graphite. Attie has been represented by P·P·O·W since 1988. Attie was awarded a Creative Artists Public Service grant in 1976-1977 from the New York State Council and National Endowment for the Arts grants in 1976 and 1983. In 2013, Attie was inducted into the National Academy of Design. Attie has exhibited nationally and internationally since 1972. Her work is in the collections of Yale University Art Gallery, CT; The Wadsworth Athenaeum, CT; Smith College Museum of Art, MA; The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum, and the Brooklyn Museum, NY; among others. In 2008, Attie was included in Burning Down the House: Building a Feminist Art Collection, curated by Mauro Reily and Nicole Caruth, at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, NY. In 2012, Attie was featured in This Will Have Been: Art, Love & Politics in the 1980s, curated by Helen Molesworth, at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, IL; the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, MA and The Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN.
