DIS..MISS

September 16, 2017 - February 10, 2018

Dis..miss presents twenty artists and art collectives’ short, original commissioned videos and offers postcards in trade for viewers’ answers to provocative questions related to gender. The artists’ works consider dialogues between feminism and gender fluidity, asking such questions as: “Who decided your gender?” “How can feminism support equality?” and “What is the problem? My body? Or society’s perception of my body?”


Visual artists: April Bey, boychild, Cassils, Chan and Mann, Roya Falahi, Alexandra Grant, Micol Hebron, Thinh Nguyen, and Shizu Saldamand


Video artists: Adebukola Bodunrin, Mail Order Brides (Eliza Barrios, Reanne Estrada, and Jenifer Wofford), Gloria Morán, Meena Nanji, and Caress Reeves


Dis..Miss is organized by Freewaves, the media arts organization promoting engagement on current issues through art. To view Dis…Miss videos, postcards and events visit freewaves.org.
