WOMEN我們 Opening

Program

September 15

Saturday, 1 - 4 pm

WOMEN 我們features video works, installation art, drawings, and paintings by a diverse array of female, male, and LGBTQ artists. Titled with the Mandarin-English homophone, WOMEN我們, meaning both ‘women’ and ‘we,’ the show evolved from a purely feminist exploration and expression of feminism in Chinese visual culture to go on to examine gay and transgender visibility, and sexual identity in China. The theme of the exhibition focuses on visibility, authority, and possibility for the movement with the goal of introducing a visual experience on the forefront of culture. These works strive to influence and push the value proposition and discourse on these issues, which are often lacked, estranged, or even feared by the mainstream society.
