DESCRIPTION

In the past, professional sports and the visual arts have both kept women on the sidelines. For SHE GOT GAME , curator Jeffry Cudlin has brought together 11 artists—female, male, and transgendered—who explore shifting contemporary perceptions of women’s bodies, gender roles, and identities through the lens of sports spectacle. Some of these artists offer iconic images of strong women athletes; others use the trappings of sport as a framework for performances about competition, objectification, and popular culture. Painted murals, larger-than-life-sized photos, videos, and installations depict women in professional tennis, bodybuilding, cheerleading, and even competitive eating.
