Organized by Dan Nadel and Laurie Simmons, the occult-themed group art show, “All of Them Witches,” delivers a mixed media magical experience at the Jeffrey Deitch gallery, Los Angeles.
The exhibition explores topics like sexuality and gender through a dark “witchy” lens. The art featured is ritualistic, mystical, and meaningful in a profound sense. Many forms of media are present, from painting (Gertrude Abercrombie), drawing (Heather Benjamin), sculpture (Greer Lankton), videos (Marilyn Minter), and photographs (Cindy Sherman).
“This exhibition arose from a conversation we’ve been having for years about our shared affinity for a certain kind of art to which we’re drawn, can’t quite name, but recognize when we see it. Artworks and artists that share an affinity with what we thought of as a “witchy” sensibility, which we see as using the iconography of the supernatural, occult, and witchcraft to channel ideas about power, the body, and gender.” - Dan Nadel
Featured artists include - Judy Chicago, a notable feminist artist and educator, and Niki de Saint Phalle, a French-American sculptor. The rare work of the deceased, Marjorie Cameron Parsons (also known as Cameron) a self-proclaimed Los Angeles occult practitioner, is also on display.
