E.V. Day is a sculptor and installation artist known for probing issues of gender and sexuality, often by incorporating eviscerated articles of clothing in her artwork. Day deconstructs sexual stereotypes—quite literally—by ripping and shredding haute couture, wedding gowns, and lingerie into abstract compositions resembling clouds of flying shrapnel or supernovae. Her work—which she describes as "futurist abstract paintings in three dimensions"—playfully transforms conventional signifiers of femininity into genderless, abstract color fields.
Day's work has been exhibited throughout the United States and abroad at venues including the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, the Andy Warhol Museum, the Guggenheim Museum, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Brooklyn Museum, the Barbican Centre in London, and the New Museum.
