11. “A Few Small Nips” at Mrs. Gallery, Maspeth
Painted in 1935, Frida Kahlo’s A Few Small Nips is among the Mexican artist’s most indelible images. The painting shows a naked, butchered woman on a bed with a man standing above her. Kahlo painted the image after discovering Diego Rivera’s affair with her younger sister Cristina; the title she’d taken from a headline quote of a man who’d murdered his wife in a drunken rage. This group show brings together the works of artists Marisa Adesman, Genesis Belanger, Langdon Graves, Koak, Jesse Mockrin, Rose Nestler, GaHee Park, Jennifer Rose Sciarrino, and Robin F. Williams, who each explore the culture of femininity, in which the depths of women’s of experiences are subverted and refracted to preserve a mask of civility.
Location: Mrs. Gallery, 60-40 56th Drive, Maspeth, NY 11378
Time: Tuesday–Friday, 11 a.m.–6 p.m.; Saturday, 12–5 p.m.
