Downtown arts collective, EMP, is opening their first exhibition of 2013 on January 18th. “Reject the Gaze” features the paintings and drawings of local visual artists Lacey Anderson and Sylvia O.
In “Reject the Gaze,” the artists are stylistically juxtaposed yet share a similar effect on the viewer: both Anderson and Ortiz turn notions of the flesh on their head and directly challenge the viewer’s gaze on the female form.
“Reject the Gaze” opens January 18.
