CP Projects Space at the School of Visual Arts is pleased to present “FEMMEPHILIA,” curated by MA Curatorial Practice fellow Marley C. Smit. “FEMMEPHILIA” is a group exhibition featuring artists whose work envisions femininity as a source of power and community, rather than the image of frailty and frivolity that patriarchal culture paints of the feminine.
The aim of “FEMMEPHILIA” is two-fold: first, to create a space for femmes of all gender identities to feel seen and celebrated. Second, “FEMMEPHILIA” aims to create a space in which people who have internalized femmephobia will be confronted with the celebration of femininity displayed in the artwork and implored to reassess their attitudes towards all things femme.
