Exhibition - On Her Terms: Feminine Power Embodied

Thursday, May 23, 2024 from 12:00pm to 4:00pm


On Her Terms: Feminine Power Embodied features New England artists who foreground the human body in their work to engage contemporary issues around women’s rights. Taking inspiration from concepts including the Woman Life Freedom movement, modern rap, historical gynecological tools, and Victorian hair weaving, these artists identify the body as a site of empowerment. Whether represented through stark archival photography, delicate graphite drawings, or a dazzling maximalist aesthetic, the feminine form becomes an intimate place to reclaim personal agency and reckon with systems that politicize gender.

This exhibition includes artwork by Azita Moradkhani, Catherine McCarthy, Claudia Olds Goldie, Lindsey Beal, Maria Yolanda Liebana, Minoo Emami, and Nafis M. White. Their multi-media work balances the personal and collective histories of women existing under gender oppressive regimes—themes of vulnerability and ferocity, radical joy and elegy emerge in interlacing narratives of self-reclamation.

Exhibition Dates: February 3 - June 2, 2024
