F*ck U! In the Most Loving Way

DESCRIPTION
“F*ck U! In the Most Loving Way” revisits the critiques of women’s relational gender roles presented in the 1972 landmark feminist WomanHouse exhibition.  At a time when rude and crude discourse seems to be increasingly the norm, this exhibition explores how self-identified women are choosing to express their discontent with prescribed and outdated binary gender roles. Submit works that address women's responses to sexist and discriminatory communication within the domestic sphere, work environment, and public realm.
