Boys or girls? Who cares?!
Said Atabekov, Janet Biggs, Gerard Byrne, Carlson/Strom, Eli Cortińas, Wilson Diaz, Lara Glusman, Oded Hirsch, Yasumasa Morimura and Markus Schinwald.
Curated by Julia Draganović and Claudia Löffelholz
For the inaugural edition of CONTEXT Art Miami, the strictly contemporary branch of Art Miami, Miami's historic fair of contemporary and modern art, Julia Draganović and Claudia Löffelholz present a video show with 10 works lent from institutions and private collections. Boys or Girls? Who cares?! includes a series of more and less stereotypical views on gender roles, some of them slightly updated, modified or even completely shattered in a way that, finally, might question the relevance of gender affiliation in itself. >>>
