EXHIBITION

NSFW: Female Gaze

NSFW: Female Gaze, co-curated by VICE Media’s Creators, showcases over 25 emerging female artists from various disciplines dedicated to powerful feminine narratives. Every day, women are faced with a world of images that reflect male perspectives on sexual desire. The artists in NSFW Female Gaze both reclaim and break out of women’s historical roles as muse and object. The exhibition showcases a fearless new visual language of desire that defies social norms and expectations.

 

The artists featured in the exhibition are working at the intersections of identity and life experience, genre and process. They are exploring sexuality on their own terms, bringing to light new angles of expression. From Instagram and GIF platforms to textile, painting and photography, these artists take a diverse and fearless approach to sex, shattering mythologies of female sexuality and restructuring stereotypes to explore a more complex relationship between gender, pleasure, fantasy and desire.
