Presented by the Hofstra University Museum, Through December 15
How visual artists from different cultures depict gender roles is the theme of a Hofstra University Museum exhibition, Converging Voices: Gender and Identity, on display through December 15, 2017, at the Emily Lowe Gallery.
This original exhibition, curated by Karen T. Albert, Hofstra University Museum deputy director and chief curator, features international artists such as Ghada Amer, Mariam Ghani, Martine Gutierrez, Guerrilla Girls, Yee I-Lann, Zanele Muholi, Pinaree Sanpitak, Carrie Mae Weems, and Philemona Williamson. Their works examine cultural and personal identity, question the stereotypes and social norms, and challenge the traditional relationship between gender and society. Their works differ greatly even as they address similar issues.
Funding support has been provided by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
This exhibition is presented in association with the 17th Berkshire Conference on the History of Women, Genders, and Sexualities to be held at Hofstra University June 1-4, 2017. For more information or to register, please visit 2017berkshireconference.hofstra.edu.
