From May 28 through September 4, MMoCA will present Claire Stigliani: Half-Sick of Shadows, an exhibition featuring a new body of work by Brooklyn-based artist Claire Stigliani. Stigliani is known for her mixed-media drawings that fuse together references to fairy tales, autobiography, and pop culture to interrogate contemporary notions of femininity. For her solo show at MMoCA, the artist is moving beyond the two dimensional surface of her luminous drawings by rendering them as three-dimensional, miniaturized sets, which Stigliani then uses to create stop-motion videos.
