House of Shadows Presents

Vulva - Deconstructing Femininity

Saturday, July 17, 2021 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM

About the Exhibition:

Femininity is identified as a set of attributes, behaviors, and roles generally associated with girls and women. Femininity is constructed and can be both biological and socially defined. 

Feminity is distinct from the definition of biological sex, as both men and women can exhibit feminine traits/behaviors. 

Vulva intends to spotlight all biological and socially defined attributes, behavior and roles, associated with feminity, while also using the vulva as a symbol for physical and non-physical representation. 

We are looking for work that exemplifies and explores a more modern and conceptual deconstruction of femininity. Work that pushes the envelope and widens the intellectual, visual, and simplistic perception of what it means to be feminine.
