Curatorial statement: This year’s Gender Studies Symposium art exhibition reflects the wide array of possible interpretations surrounding the topics of gender, sexuality, capitalism, and the conversations at play between the three. Through a variety of media, these artists have interrogated the implications of a capitalist structure that divides, subsumes, and shapes nearly every aspect of one’s corporeal and subjective experience. Be it through ideas of consumption, production, occupation, labor, or media, the artwork on display links these themes to an experience of gender and sexuality that we, as curators, found particularly evocative. The work included in this exhibition represents a multiplicity of approaches both aesthetically and conceptually. From new media to types of making that span centuries, the thought and methodology involved are exciting channels through which to engage with ideas illuminated by this year’s speakers and panels.
