Sweet & Subversive: Contemporary Feminist Craft is an exhibition that ironically appropriates feminine stereotypes to expand the discourse of contemporary feminism. The exhibition is founded on the subversive craft movement and cupcake feminism, a trend focused on playing with the ideals of the 50’s housewife. The artwork is simultaneously cheeky and critical to convey new thoughts on the female perspective.
Featured artists: Ellen Greene, Mary O'Brien, Forrest Solis, Cait Spera, Shalene Valenzuela & Jennifer Weigel
