Women on the Rise! is excited to announce that works created by participants at Pridelines Youth Services in collaboration with instructor, Nereida Garcia – Ferraz will be on display in the exhibition, REVERSE: rewriting culture. This exhibition seeks to review the body of work of contemporary gay artists that are proposing a horizontal reading of gender, sexuality, social concerns and ontological issues.
In collaboration with students at Pridelines Youth Services, Nereida Garcia Ferraz focused on exploring themes particular to girls within the GLBTQ community. By studying the works of artists such as Catherine Opie and Zaneli Muholi, participants reflected on gender non-conformity and presented spectrums of gender roles, performance and representation.
On view at DotFiftyOne Gallery
