GENDERED: An Inclusive Art Show, organized by Young Affiliates of the Mint, will be on view for FREE in Mint Museum Uptown’s Level 5 expansion space from Friday, June 16, 2017 through Friday, July 21, 2017. An Opening will be held on Friday, June 16 from 7 to 10 p.m. An Artist Panel moderated by Adam Justice, Assistant Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Mint Museum, will be held on Wednesday, June 28 from 6 to 8 p.m.
GENDERED seeks to create an inclusive arts forum for gender and its common intersectionalities with race, class, sexuality, and identity. The current divisive political climate finds people seeking a means to come together and find a common understanding. The YAMs believe in the unifying force of art and seek to create a safe space of expression and dialogue. GENDERED is a group exhibition featuring twenty-four artists from across the country and representing a variety of viewpoints through diverse mediums that invites viewers to join the conversation. The featured works of art were selected by a panel of esteemed jurors: Kelli Connell, Ryan James Caruthers, John Edmonds, & Carla Hanzal.
