The Intersectional Self Opening
Friday, February 10, 2017
6 to 8pm
The Intersectional Self, an exhibition centered on gender and feminist politics in the age of trans-identity, featured the work of artists Janine Antoni, Andrea Bowers, Patty Chang, Abigail DeVille, Ana Mendieta, Catherine Opie, Adrian Piper, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Cindy Sherman, and Martha Wilson. The exhibition both explored how notions of femininity (and alternately, masculinity) have shifted in the context of newly defined gender identities and how family structures have been reimagined and reshaped through relatively recent advances in reproductive medicine and evolving gender roles. Ultimately, The Intersectional Self examined how feminism in its many forms has changed the world as we know it. The exhibition was on view from February 9 through May 19, 2017.
