Submit   gender + art If blogs were mullets, this would be the party at the back where I aggregate anything to do with gender in arts and popular culture. mainly queer & feminist art, a smidge of personal favorite artists, the occasional related docos and news. For the business at the front of sharing art that might interest queer, feminist, womanist, genderqueer, transgender, whoever creatives: please click on the pink above.

Titled for Yayoi Kusama, who is the cat's pyjamas.


(via Man as Object - Reversing the Gaze)
The surveyor of women in herself is male: the surveyed female … thus she tums herself into an object-and most particularly an object of vision: a sight”.Ways of Seeing, by John Berger MAN as OBJECT - Reversing the GazeThe exhibition ‘Man as Object: Reversing the Gaze’  will examine the visibility of men and masculinity from female/feminist/transgender perspectives.  In the context of this exhibition, the male figure will assume the historically ‘female’ role with the male body and its gender expression shown as spectacle for a woman’s viewing and contemplation.
This truly feminist stance positions the surveyor as critic of traditional gender roles, problematizing notions of ‘men,’ ‘male,’ ‘masculinity,’ ‘women’ and ‘female.’ This is an inclusive show for women and transgender artists to challenge what it means for ‘women’ to look at ‘men.’ ‘Man as Object: Reversing the Gaze’ SOMArts Cultural Center, 934 Brannan Street, San Francisco, CA  November 4 - 30, 2011.
