Thinkspace Projects is pleased to present two brand new solo exhibitions. In Gallery One, Hilda Palafox’s--also known as PONI--latest solo show, ‘Un día a la vez’ examines the mystery and meaning of the feminine physical, emotional, and mental state. Examining the visible body as shapeless matter willing to mold itself, Palafox utilizes shapes, colors, and textures that seem to embody Latin American women. The radiant colors, robust silhouettes, dark skin, and monumental bodies intermingle with the spaces containing them, creating a study in space and femininity as a concept.

In Gallery Two, Thinkspace Projects is excited to present Olga Esther’s U.S. west coast debut solo show, ‘Princesses, Gender Mandates, and Other Stories.’ Using the symbolism of princess-tales, Esther broaches the subjects of gender and feminism. Examining the specifics of gender mandates, Esther investigates how the construction of our roles identity as women is based on the fulfillment of specific roles, and further explores the women who, despite society’s pressure, disobey and stray from these societal expectations. She turns a critical eye to the myth of Prince Charming and romantic love, exposing patriarchal motivation within classic tales.
