Gendered embodiment has always been plastic: we adorn ourselves with piercings and tattoos; bind, confine, and refine our contours; and learn to move in and out of step with societal expectations. Today, consumer society places unprecedented pressure on women and men to conform, while the proliferation of subcultures allows for ever more outrageous inventions and expressions. Bodies by Design features works by an eclectic array of women artists from around the country who engage with this issue, asking: How do we survive and thrive in these extraordinary times?
The exhibition is sponsored by the Koehnline Museum of Art and the Women's Gender Studies Program.
