Join us for the opening of The Power of Feminine Energy : a dis de la muter exhibition brought to you by Mujeres De Maiz Fronterizas.
Over 50 women from all over San Diego and beyond will be participating in The Power of Feminine Energy, an all women’s art exhibition celebrating International Women’s Day.
The exhibition is being organized by the artist collective Mujeres de Maiz Fronterizas based out of the San Diego / Tijuana border region. The collective, which seeks to empower women of color through mentorship, art, culture, activism and leadership opportunities is excited to be creating a safe-space for women to celebrate themselves and each other, and stated the following about the upcoming show: “In the Power of Feminine Energy” Mujeres de Maíz Fronterizas aims to highlight work by women from all walks of life and all levels of training.
We open the space to both emerging and established artists to give self-identified women and girls the opportunity to tell their stories through art. The theme asks women to challenge misrepresentations of femininity as “weak” and to convey instead how the power of feminine energy challenges patriarchy, oppression and other forms of gender violence. Because women’s stories are often excluded from mainstream platforms, and are especially underrepresented in the art world, we hope that this exhibit contributes towards creating more opportunities for women’s voices to be heard.
