Judith Bernstein’s We Don’t Owe You a Tomorrow

Bernstein’s solo exhibition, We Don’t Owe You a Tomorrow is her sixth solo exhibition with the Box LA. The current divisive political climate has inspired her new meteoric series. In addition to Humor the artist incorporates blatant hate symbols such as Swastikas and assault rifles to reveal a terrifying realty of what is to come. Bernstein tackles extremism that threatens the core of democracy through fluorescent paint and gestural brush strokes against infinite black canvases.

About Judith Bernstein

Since receiving her MFA from Yale in 1967, Judith Bernstein has developed a reputation as one of the most unwaveringly provocative artists of her generation. For over 50 years, her work has explored connections between the political as well as the sexual. Steadfast in her cultural, political, and social critique, Bernstein surged into art world prominence in the early 1970s with her monumental anti-war and feminist charcoal drawings of penis-screw hybrids—one of the artist’s most recognizable motifs. Bernstein has also been awarded numerous accolades throughout her career and has been the subject of major solo exhibitions at museums in New York and abroad. Her monumental 9 x 12 1⁄2 feet charcoal drawing Horizontal was purchased by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY in 2023.
