Girl, Please: Looking Forward

Girl, Please is an exhibition that attempts to push the boundaries and blurred lines of contemporary social politics relating to gender and sexual identity. Situated in the lower level of Woman Made Gallery, Emanuel Aguilar and Kristen Carter (jurors and curators) selected a body of art work based not only on aesthetic qualities and the nature of the work but also arranged the layout in such a way to create a specific relationship to potentially ignite critical conversation. This exhibition is one of few focusing on this theme that effectively attempts to eloquently add and synonymously strip away the standard. And instead, focus on a new way to think critically.
