GO FIGURE: The Female Gaze

DATE & TIME: November 4, 2019 - December 4, 2019
Go Figure: The Female Gaze presents the work of eleven women artists who are embracing feminism and ecofeminism in order to challenge the traditions of male hegemony in art. 


How does a distinctly female point of view manifest in terms of both content and form, particularly as it relates to figuration, sexualization, and power? What are the characteristics of a feminine gaze? Does it provide an alternative to existing stereotypes?

The artists of Go Figure employ strategies of representation in a variety of materials and methods from painting, sculpture and photography to printmaking and video.
