DESCRIPTION

Bill Copeland once quipped,  “Not only is women's work never done, the definition keeps changing.” This show examines that changing definition and works to create a conversation about gender issues. In “Shifting Definitions” both male and female artists explore everything from women’s roles to “women’s work,” from sexual harassment to sexual power, and from the male gaze to the KTV commoditization of the female body. These artists attempt to problematize the binary gender dynamic offering a chorus of voices on a number of subjects rarely voiced in contemporary China.
