…. This is what happens to a woman artist,
an artist of color, a lesbian that she gets filtered
out of history, that her accomplishments
are not noted, that they are not remembered.
— The Worlds of Bernice Bing (2013)

Outskirts: Bodies, Places, and Identities
is an exhibition project working towards creating a place for women artists from all walks of life, diverse cultural backgrounds, and different identities of race, sexuality, or age. The project will showcase the works of the participating women artists in a series of solo and collaborative exhibitions. Artists are encouraged to express new ideas and experiment with various media.

From the curatorial perspective, the main focus will be on the intersections between bodies, places and identities. We’ll seek to explore issues and concepts in relation to the embodied experience in time and space; the hybridization between identities and cultures; as well as the binary constructs of gender, domestic vs. public spheres, and outskirt vs. center with respect to societies, social spaces and identities.

Ultimately, Outskirts will be a place for women artists to speak about issues and stories that are too often unwaveringly told yet unheard, and a place to acknowledge the subjectivities of those who are for the most part unrecognized and misrepresented in the dominant culture.
