Event Details

“Not Your P*ssy”: Lessons in Modern Body Autonomy is a re-appropriation of power of the voyeur from masculine to feminine. It positions women as producer and consumer of pleasure, not just a subject of a male dominated gaze.

This multidisciplinary body of work amplifies the current and overwhelming fight for women’s rights and cultural equality by using performance, painting and photography to empower the once silent voice of women.

The artist aims to shake the patriarchal base of the culture and question traditional and common modes of equality, power and respect. Using vintage pornography and modern pole dance, this work incorporates the taboo, kitsch and the blue collar into the elite, fine-art arena.

Thus, creating a tension between high-brow vs low-brow… foreshadowing the culturally relevant battle between the governed and the governing, illustrating the struggle for female body autonomy within the socio-cultural and political realm.

Katie Gray: “Not Your Pussy” Art Show

ATAK Gallery SF, 1038 Larkin St., San Francisco, California 94101

The body of work will include performance orchestrated by Katie Gray and performed by Katie Chin, Patricia Nobles, Coral Trimble, Mimi Midnight & Tricia Sakai. Utilizing geometric color-block elements replicated in the paintings and photo series, these women will become living, breathing pieces of art. The movement within the work challenges ideas of high-brow vs low-brow and brings light to the continuing struggle for women’s rights and equality.
