The Sexual Politics of Meat
On view starting February 24, 2017.
“How does someone become something?”
Fourteen contemporary women artists ask and explore this very question through a variety of media in The Sexual Politics of Meat, a landmark and thought-provoking exhibition presented by The Animal Museum.
Selected artistic works have been inspired by the ecofeminist theories presented in Carol J. Adams’ tome of the same name, The Sexual Politics of Meat, which has become a cultural phenomenon since its publication 25 years ago. Adams sees women and animals as marginalized and objectified in patriarchal cultures and analyzes how people might literally and metaphorically become “pieces of meat.” The exhibition is a showcase of how artists internalize theory and create original work as a result.
Through their works, the international artists examine intersecting oppressions based on gender, race and species and consider what objectification means to them personally, politically and poetically.
