Women are often subjected to a gaze which shapes their identity. This gaze is from men, other women, and society at large which makes a woman feel conscious about herself. It signifies a woman to be The Other as she is excluded from the community. The theme for the exhibition is this ‘gaze’, of being a woman, a woman of colour, a person identifying as a woman, an outsider, and any other way of depicting hierarchy.
Our goal is to document multiple varied voices leading to a strong single female voice by showcasing various perspectives/experiences of defining this “Gaze”. This exhibit with international womxn artists is an attempt to construct a visual and vocal message with the support of art & women artists. Documentation of ‘the gaze’ that has stopped them, broken them, hurt them, and also set the fire in them to come forward.
