What does true masculinity look like? How does a man see himself? What do others see? There are the typical/stereotypical definitions of what it means to be a man; and then there are the more complex situations and confrontations that life presents to us, forcing us to find a definition of our own. This show, open to artists of both genders, will endeavor to explain, depict, and hopefully overflow those previously shallow borders that define the ‘masculine.’ It takes courage to care, to live large — no matter your gender.
Scheduled to run concurrently with the First New Jersey Conference on Maleness and Masculinity in August, 2013, this visual-art exhibition is open for submission to works made on paper (printmaking, papermaking, photography, artist books) by artists working in all methodologies and imagery (abstract, representational, concept-based).
