Beaver is a multi-disciplinary exhibition, performance, and panel discussion delving into contemporary feminist perspectives on pornography, gender performance, and female sexual self-expression. Inspired by artist Naomi Elena Ramirez's work of the same name which interrogates porn culture and female sexual expression through dance and visual scores for the body, this one-day event, curated by Ramirez and Kristen Sollee of the sex positive feminist site Slutist.com seeks to create discourse, awareness, and community.
The exhibition features over a dozen contemporary female artists whose work expresses a diverse cross-section of perspectives on female sexuality and women's embodied experiences through photography, painting, drawing, collage, performance and video art. Following screenings and a performance of Ramirez's piece, the event will culminate in a panel featuring artists, educators and activists who will discuss intersections of sex, race, gender, and sexuality in art, media representations, and lived experiences.
