DESCRIPTION

Mounted by ARC Gallery during Women's History Month, Fractured Yet Rising is a multimedia art exhibit that raises awareness about the different dimensions of violence against women, and communicates the experiences, journeys and shifts in self-perception from victims to communicators about the phenomenon. The exhibition explores the theme of violence against women by engaging with story and experience, the psychology of abuse, survival and transformation, and the role of mass media and culture in furthering violence against women. Healthy definitions of masculinity and femininity also will be depicted along with spiritual and conceptual foundations for understanding the phenomenon.
