Innuendos: The Voices of 10 Bronxite Women
Opening Reception: Friday, March 6th
Art Exhibition From March 6th to April 1st!
This collection of works by ten women artists from The Bronx seeks to connect you to the female form. It celebrates women, body and spirit, through metaphors intended to destroy the stigmatism of women’s bodies and to reflect the elegance of the female form through its closeness to the universe.
Innuendos, is a forum for artists and members of the community to discuss the problems women face in this new age, including how our accomplishments continue to be ignored by many members of our society. The works explore and bring light to how the bodies and spirits of women have been affected or negatively influenced by constant sexualization, commercialization and enslavement. The presentation of these conceptual works is also meant to illustrate the different societal elements that have shaped ideas of the female form in an attempt to subdue women’s freedoms and power in a patriarchal society.
Co Curators Yelaine Rodriguez and Yolanda L. Rodriguez have chosen Women’s History Month to bring a multimedia collection of works that reflect a variety of styles and representations of women.
