Reverse: Rewriting culture

About the show:

Reverse: Rewriting culture seeks to review the body of work of contemporary gay artists that freed from any fig leaf are proposing a horizontal reading about gender, sexuality, social concerns, and ontological issues.

This exhibition is the first edition of the ambitious project “ONE WAY”, that in each edition will call a group of artists whose sexual orientation does not correspond to the dominant stereotype of heterosexuality, neither with the wild spread misconception that reduce the production of gay artists to homoerotic contents.

Reverse: Rewriting culture seeks to avoid incurring two extended stereotypes and therefore errors that dominate the approach to this kind of production that include, but are not limited to the following misconceptions: Concealment or silencing of sexual orientation of the author, or by the contrary, Confinement and reduction to the mere erotic commentary that silences or minimizes the social implications that motivates these works placing them away from general social channel where definitely belong these proposals.

ON THE RISE! AT PRIDELINES : NEREIDA GARCIA – FERRAZ

In collaboration with myra, Langston, eureka, Jeffrey & abi MOCA’s Women on the Rise! employs methods from contemporary art to increase awareness of women artists and empower young women through creative self-expression. In under-served communities throughout Miami-Dade County, WOTR! instructors seek to create affirmative engagement and increased awareness of women artists among young women, and help them to develop their own creative capacity and articulate their individual voice. By providing transformative outlets for self-expression, WOTR! encourages young women to effectively and positively negotiate the sociological constraints of their environment.

In collaboration with students at Pridelines Youth Services, artist and Women On The Rise! instructor, Nereida Garcia Ferraz focuses on exploring themes particular to girls within the GLBTQ community. By studying the works of artists such as Catherine Opie and Zaneli Muholi, participants reflect on gender non-conformity and present spectrums of gender roles, performance and representation. Pridelines Youth Services is dedicated to supporting, educating and empowering South Florida’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth in a safe and diverse environment. Rooted in a peerled/ adult-facilitated youth group model, Pridelines has provided safe space, social support, skills building, leadership development and referrals to mental health, health care and support services for LGBTQ youth and their straight allies for more than 32 years
