When: April 7 through May 1
(Reception Thursday, April 7 from 6-10 pm)
Where: Wolff Gallery: in Portland, Oregon.
What: Wolff Gallery will host "Now I am Myself," a group show featuring five female artists, all of whom are photographing themselves or other women in ways that reject, challenge, or circumvent the male gaze. Although this is not a new revisionist effort for feminist artists, equitable representation of women within popular media culture continues to be rare. This show exists as another divergence from the status quo, with each artist offering her unique narrative and vision in order to create space for herself in front of the camera and move the discourse beyond objectification to empowerment.
Featured artists include Audra Osborne, Briana Cerezo, Calethia DeConto, Jamila Clarke, and Lauren Crow
Starting April 7th
Open every First Thursday, 6-10pm
