Petra Collins, et. al. Young Women Showing and Gazing



A number of young women artist are discussed in NYTimes article The Female Gaze by Jenna Wortham. Their bold imagery is raising questions: what is appropriate? subversive? expressive? indecent? girl power? disingenuous? sexual object?

What comes through is a nascent, evolving movement. “I wanted to create a space for girls like me to show their work and connect with one another,” Collins writes, and that is what she has done and is doing, as sincerely as promised. It’s the continuation of a developing conversation online, one created and defined by the women who are living it. You can't help wondering what else isn’t being shown.
