Add event to my calendar

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, and related directives advocating social distancing, this event will be rescheduled for later this year, tentatively for July 2020. We'll update as we have information.

Join us at Praxis Fiber Workshop for a one-night exhibition of new work by juniors Kaitlyn McKanna (DRG), Ash Sark (DRG/PTG), Samantha Schneider (DRG/PTG) and Amani Williams (DRG).

Doing a Gender examines, poses questions, and challenges how gender is viewed in mass culture today. According to the artists, “The exhibition will explore how seeing gender identity is not concrete, but rather fluid and ever-changing, according to the way in which we present ourselves at any given moment. Representation affects us deeply; how does the media we grew up watching show us how not to perform our gender? In making and exhibiting these works, we encourage the audience to consider how they view traditional representations of gender.”

Doing a Gender was organized through CIA’s Creativity Works program, designed to create self-initiated real-world experiences for students in the visual arts and craft majors, and is supported by the generosity of the GR Lincoln Family Foundation and the Fenn Educational Fund of the Cleveland Foundation.
