presented at: Classic Car West Gallery – 411 26th Street, Oakland
From the coyly adventurous calendar girl hanging on locker-room walls to Instagram and high fashion spreads, representations and notions of femininity, feminism and female identity are shifting; so too are expectations and standards of masculinity and male beauty. Who or what is the “ideal”; who interprets and owns this new standard?
OFFspace has embodied the current debate in this charged landscape with work alluding to, defying and epitomizing the new/post/disrupted ideal. Taking on fascination with weaponized sexuality, cheeky twists on the traditional supine, passive nude and the “candid” snapshot Pin Up! artists bring an array of views and perspectives together to challenge and celebrate the idealized (fe)male form.
