About This Event
In conjunction with the exhibition Women by Women, Heiner Contemporary is pleased to join forces with The Pink Line Project to present The Woman in Me: Femininity and its Construction in Contemporary Culture.
Join us for what's sure to be a titillating discussion of how the feminine reveals itself in contemporary performance. Musician Yoko K, "boylesque" performer Paco Fish, DJ/educator Ebony Dumas and poet Holly Bass will each offer creative demonstrations of their work before launching into a conversation on topics ranging from the female gaze and the role of seduction to gender-bending and uses of the body in creative production.
