Women: Relationship and Identity

Women: Relationship and Identity is a fine art exhibition juried by Rachel Epp Buller, and a visual conversation about the role relationships play in the identity of women.  Whether implicit, explicit, self-imposed or from a Western sociologic construct, women are generally regarded as the more relational gender. Participating artists examine the various relationships women share, the ways those relationships contribute to their own sense of identity and the impact they have on other’s perceptions – ultimately leading to a broader understanding of the role and identity of women.
