Paulina Peavy: Astrocultural Messenger

Paulina Peavy: Astrocultural Messenger

Curated by Laura Whitcomb

September 14 – October 28, 2023

Andrew Edlin Gallery 212 Bowery
New York, NY 10012

While Paulina Peavy’s (1901-1999) life spanned the twentieth century, her art and belief system represent a crucible for our current moment. She challenged gender norms and racial divides, revitalized hermetic and matriarchal systems, embraced cult traditions, and played a vital role in a community of groundbreaking artists. She saw herself as an emissary, a messenger for advanced beings contextualized through the phenomenon of UFOs. A radical innovator, Peavy would become the first established fine artist to be publicly associated with the movement known as astroculture.
