Kate Hutchinson sent us a note of a group exhibition showcasing 14 rising photographers whose work focuses on gender and sexuality curated by Rafael Soldi, Paolo Morales, and Elle Perez.
Farmani Gallery is proud to present Select Gender, introducing fourteen rising photographers communicating their contemporary viewpoint within fine art photography. The exhibition, co-curated by budding artists Rafael Soldi, Paolo Morales and Elle Perez, will present a diverse selection of innovative artworks that focus on the theme of gender perceptions and the role of sexual assignments in America and abroad. This exhibition embraces the mission of the gallery and the curators in their support of promising talent and our hopes to further a conversation through photographic works of present-day subject matter.
Select Gender revolves around the themes of gender-based identity, self-awareness and gender-specific culture. Whether they are discussing their own identity or that of others, this diverse group of emerging photographers shows us different aspects and interpretations of perceived gender roles. The juxtapositions of gender queer, hyper masculinities, and ambiguous representations force the viewer to question his or her own perceptions and the legitimacy of a gender binary. Ultimately the goal of Select Gender is not to expose, shock, or titillate, but to offer reflection on the constructs and wide range of possibilities for gender expression.
