Abbey Funk at Boynton Beach Arts District, "Girls School, a Political Disregard of a Gender."

March 26th from 6 - 10 pm. 422 W Industrial Ave., Boynton Beach

The Girls' School is a multimedia fine art exhibition exploring the aggregate experiences of 5 artists. A four part interdisciplinary curriculum which included visual art, spoken work, music, and open mic, is an invitation to the community to look beneath the surface of what is called "gender politics" and to actively engage in the dialogue.

Curator, Rolando Chang Barrero of ActivistArtistA Gallery, provides the platform for featured artists include Alana DaCosta, Allison Kotzig, Dianne Rosenberg, Niki Lopez and Abbey Funk to share their collective experiences as women, as artists, as powerful advocates against the disregard of genders, but more importantly as human beings. This event will mark the first of it's kind in the arts, the inclusion of trans-gender and cis-gender challenges for visibility in the arts and in our community. Gender is not just a biological definition: it also encompasses the idea of roles and identity in the community.

The question that runs through this exhibit is, "Are we are still falling short of the goal of true equality in today’s politically charged climate?" The exhibition which sets the stage for this dialogue will provide an "open mic," for all to participate.
