Exhibition: Gender Now

Gender NOW Exhibition, Oct. 27-Nov. 17
Gender NOW is an exhibition of selected works on how artists are defining the word, "gender." It will be on display Oct. 27-Nov. 17, 2021 in the Golding-Yang Art Gallery.

Defining gender might begin with the assignment of our sex at birth, but it goes so much further than that. An individual’s gender is based on the relationship of body, identity and social roles. Are you LGBTQ+ or an ally? Gender NOW seeks to exhibit artists who are identifying, examining and talking about what gender means to them.
  • Exhibition dates: Oct. 27-Nov. 17, 2021
  • Reception: Wednesday, Oct. 27, 5-7 p.m.

Ashley Cathey: Curator and multidisciplinary social change artist. Her large portraits hope centralize the experiences of black bodies during and after the African Diaspora. Cathey’s self-taught artistry started to emerge ideas of feminism through the lens of women of color; who have influenced her through the art of music, literature, and spoken word. These influences allowed her to display her emotions on canvas and in public spaces. Her vibrant artistic style defies convention and seeks to comment on the misrepresentation or under-representation of her subject matter.
