Gendering Desire: Liberation, Power, and Pleasure – Sponsored by the Koehnline Museum of Art and Women’s and Gender Studies at Oakton Community College.

Call For Entries - Women Artists This year’s exhibition focuses on the ways gender influences desire. From food to the erotic, desire takes many different forms, and gender is implicated in the process—and this raises a number of interesting and provocative questions. How does gender and sexuality affect our experiences of passion and pleasure? Do patriarchal and heteronormative power structures suppress human desire? Can rigid binaries of male/female, gay/straight, be transformed into a more fluid, flexible, liberated experience of desire? How do we experience passion and pleasure beyond the sexual? Do women really love chocolate more than men? Is materialism and consumption, writ large, gendered?
Oakton invites artists of all media – including performance artists—who self-identify as women, to submit a single work that thoughtfully explores not only how we express and experience pleasure and desire in the broadest sense, but also how differences of gender and sexuality may or may not affect our intimate lives and sexual relationships.
Submissions must arrive at the Koehnline Museum of Art by Tuesday, July 29, 2014.
The exhibit runs October 2 - 24, 2014.
Download the Call for Entries pdf for complete guidelines. For more information, contact Kathleen Carot at wgs@oakton.edu .
