Girls, girls, Girls: A Feminist Art Show at Northern Contemporary
FEMINIST SHOW OPENS AT NORTHERN CONTEMPORARY
TORONTO, February - Northern Contemporary is proud to expose to Toronto a unique exhibition,
Girls, Girls, Girls: A Feminist Art Show, opening on February 25th, 2016 at 7pm.
The show features contemporary feminist artists that are often overshadowed by their male
counterparts and struggle for public exposure. During Girls, Girls, Girls: A Feminist Show, Northern
Contemporary creates an unbiased exhibition space for artist to express feminist issues important to them and society as a whole. In addition to the exhibition, Northern Contemporary will host a series of workshop/networking events aimed to promote discourse and dialogue for feminist artists.
Northern Contemporary unites under its roof for 2 weeks art activists who use a variety of mediums as a tool to question gender inequality and underrepresentation in the art scene. One such artist, Rosalie H. Maheux, often questions traditions, society and conservative ideas in her works. In her Sacred Circles series, for example, Rosalie uses Catholic rose window design and merges it with imagery from mainstream pornographic actresses to address the stereotypes and double standards found in both worlds, raising questions of race and gender inequality.
The exhibition will be unveiled at Northern Contemporary on Thursday February 25th with several artists in attendance.
