There are nine streets in the Lower Garden District named after the Muses of Greek mythology—the inspirational goddesses of literature, science, and the arts.
"According to myth, poets, artists, scholars, and musicians would call on their particular Muse to ask for inspiration and guidance in their creative process.” Gemini is Femaissance’s first exhibition in the LGD, we couldn’t think of a stronger way to marry project and place than with Clayre’s muses. An homage to both the classical and the current, the 9 Muses fuses local and art history with womxn who inspire us today, in a thought-provoking body of work that demonstrates what it means to be muse-worthy today, and celebrates the power of female collaboration.
