Selections from The Sister Chapel

Rowan University Art Gallery on High Street

September 14, 2-15 - January 30. 2016

The Sister Chapel was conceived by Ilise Greenstein (1928–1985) as a visual art installation that embraced the collaborative and cooperative spirit of the women's art movement. Using a nominal pun on Michelangelo's celebrated Sistine Chapel ceiling, Greenstein issued a feminist challenge to the enduring patriarchal conceptualization of history. In striking contrast to her male predecessor, she envisioned a nonhierarchical, secular commemoration of female role models; thus, The Sister Chapel would invite viewers to reconsider familiar and often unconscious presumptions about gender roles and women's
achievements from a female perspective.
