Professor Augsburg curates feminist art exhibit

Tuesday, November 22, 2016

Opening Dec 17 at the Arc Gallery in San Francisco, F*ck U! In the Most Loving Way explores how women are choosing to express their discontent with prescribed and outdated binary gender roles.

At a time when crude and rude discourse in the public sphere seems to be increasingly the norm, this exhibition explores how women are choosing to express their discontent with prescribed and outdated binary gender roles.  F*ck U! In the Most Loving Way explores the range of responses women are faced with making when confronted with conflict within relationships. Can we reply in ways that lead to resolution and more love? Or is it important that women strive to win debates from which they were previously excluded? Since women have been silenced for so long, this exhibition aims to provide a platform for women to air their grievances in manners of their choosing while reminding the viewer that identity is fluid, relational, intersectional, performative and participatory. This exhibition aims to foster dialogue about where women position themselves centrally yet in relation to others. We are seeking works that confront traditional gender roles, express what a “woman” is today, and depict what a  woman’s life is currently really like.
