Israeli-born painter, philosopher, psychoanalyst and writer Bracha Ettinger is considered to be a prominent figure among both the French painters' and the Israeli art's scenes. This exhibition of her work at the UB Anderson Gallery will be accompanied by the creation of an associated catalogue featuring photographic reproductions of Ettinger’s work and essays by prominent scholars in psychoanalysis and art history.

The exhibition at UB Anderson Gallery, curated by Rachel Adams Miller, will be on view from April 21-July 29, 2018. It will be Ettinger’s first museum exhibition in the United States. The opening reception will take place on Saturday, April 21, 2018.

During her CAI residency, April 7-May 19, Ettinger will also work with UB visual arts students, and offer a 3-week graduate-level seminar for UB's English dept., gallery talks for UB students and the public, and a public lecture. Her residency is being held in partnership with the Center for the Study of Psychoanalysis and Culture.

Ettinger's art was recently analyzed at length in the book Women Artists at the Millennium, in Griselda Pollock's Encounters in the Virtual Feminist Museum and in Catherine de Zegher's anthology Women's Work is Never Done. Her ideas in cultural theory, psychoanalysis, and French feminism achieved recognition after the publication of Matrix and Metramorphosis (1992), fragments from her notebooks (Moma, Oxford, 1993) and The Matrixial Gaze (1995). Over the last two decades her work has been influential in art history, film studies (including feminist film theory), psychoanalysis, aesthetics, and gender studies.
