Our Pussy. Our Rules. Three Perspectives.

Based on the name alone, it seems only fitting that we feature this kick ass, estrogen-filled art exhibit coming to the New York City area this July. The art exhibit entitled, Pussy Don’t Fail Me Now, will feature three, female artists: Doreen Garner, Sophia Narrett, and Kenya (Robinson). The exhibit, which is exudes in girl power, will display artwork from the following artists that celebrate the art of being a woman, reveal gender inequalities in there world, and overall screams, “pussy rules!” But while that might be the chant, each artist has their own unique approach and aesthetic, showing their perspectives on the female body, sexuality, and gender roles. Here’s a little more about the artists.

Doreen Garner is originally from Philadelphia and focuses on the eccentricities of the Black, female body. Her work usually involves full blown sculptures, infusing glass, human hair, teeth, and jewels. Yes, we said teeth and human hair.

Sophia Narrett takes a different approach to femininity and all around bad-assness. The New York artist challenges those pompous misogynistic ideals, featuring highly sexualized heroines engulfed in beds and forests of flowers.

Finally, Kenya (Robinson) travels a long way away from her home in Germany to give the city a taste of what privilege and gender roles are. the artist has engaged in a now interactive project, carrying around a white, male figurine in her pocket at all times. The point: to remind herself that privilege is merely a social construct and holds no weight over her being or identity.

Although these artists use different materials or have a different way of spreading the message, it seems that they are all taking a stand for women in art. That’s pretty dope if you ask us. If you’re in New York, be sure to check out the Pussy Don’t Fail Me Now exhibit from July 9th to August 14th.
