Virtual gallery opening and tour for the Masculinity Project, with a featured performance by the incredible Anjimile.
The Masculinity Project, an exploration of gender performance, norms, and history, brought together a group of five multidisciplinary artists, led through an explorative study in a cohort by artist, director, and activist Maurice Palmer.
This interactive virtual gallery will bring together the work of artists in different media to explore the nuanced social, cultural, and political roles of masculinity, and its complex relationships to the personal narratives of the artists presenting work in the gallery. The process aims to artistically analyze the history of masculinity, evaluate our current performance of it, and provide a roadmap for creating a new dynamic for the way we engage with it. The piece seeks to speak what is too often unspoken around masculine identities and hopes to elicit new and healing conversations as a result.
