Through April 14, a new exhibit at NVCAC features five women who explore what it means to live in a woman’s body.
A new exhibit currently on display at CityScape Community ArtSpace in North Vancouver seeks to explore the realities of inhabiting a woman’s body.
Through the use of fashion, photography, weaves and textiles, the five women exhibition celebrates the achievements of women in science, plays with notions of bodies in space and examines how the world fashion can form invisible barriers that prevent women from becoming equal in society.
Artists Ilze Bebris, Catherine M. Stewart, Kiku Hawkes, Ruth Scheuing and Marcia Pitch came together to create the show, titled I wanted to go for a walk in space but I had nothing to wear.
To coincide with the exhibition, Bebris, Pitch and Hawkes are hosting a free workshop on Saturday, March 12 from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., where they will share their treasure trove of materials and give attendees a slew of materials to make their own space travel suit. space.
I wanted to take a walk in space but I had nothing to wear until April 14, with an official in-person exhibition opening on March 31.
CityScape is located at 335 Lonsdale Avenue. The contemporary art space is owned by the City of North Vancouver and is programmed and managed by North Van Arts.
