This event has ended.

Curated by Deborah Yasinsky


Beasts Like Me: Feminism and Fantasy presents works investigating animals, anthropomorphism and the dance between representations of self and animalistic notions. Looking at the way women’s bodies are politicized and how artists incorporate the body, animals, and beasts into their work. Bodies morph and undergo transformation, part human and part beast in subversive fictionalized imagery. The works elucidate the transformative effect of fantasy, revealing mythical imagery of animals, and imagined beasts in a new light of empowerment. The exhibition encompasses painting, photography, sculpture, printmaking, installation and film. Presented as part of the Feminist Art Coalition initiative to highlight feminist practices in the arts in the run up to the presidential election in the Fall of 2020.
