and civil rights, and Black queer subjectivity through the lens of
three unique artists. Curated by Prof. Beatrix Reinhardt.

Three artists present works that explore female sexuality, desire, feminine narratives and civil rights, and Black queer subjectivity. Curated by Prof. Beatrix Reinhardt. 

Participating Artists:

Kira Nam Greene’s (http://kiranamgreene.com) work explores female sexuality, desire and control through lush still-life paintings of food, surrounded by complex patterns and abstract designs. Imbuing the feminist legacies of Pattern and Decoration Movement with transnational/multicultural patterns, Greene creates colorful paintings that are unique combinations of realism and abstraction, employing diverse media such as oil, acrylic, gouache, watercolor and colored pencil.

Katrina Majkut (http://katrinamajkut.format.com) is dedicated to understanding and exploring feminine narratives and civil rights in aesthetics and social practices within mediums such as embroidery, painting and writing. Historically, cross-stitch often denoted ideas of womanhood, wifedom and motherhood but excluded bodily functions, autonomy and diverse lifestyles, which are essential for any of those roles. Her artwork In Control attempts to directly challenge this concept by attempting to stitch all modernproducts related to women’s health/needs with bipartisan, medically honest approaches. It also seeks to respond to contemporary issues surrounding reproductive rights and women’s bodies.

Kiyan Williams (kiyanwilliams.com) Kiyan Williams (gender pronouns they/them/theirs) is a multidisciplinary artist who explores Black queer subjectivity. They create performances, texts, objects, videos, sounds, and installations informed by autoethnography, archival research, and social practice.
