The Young Affiliates of the Mint (the “YAMs”) have their second annual art show coming this month titled, GENDERED: An Inclusive Art Show.
GENDERED seeks to create an inclusive arts forum for gender and its common intersectionalities with race, class, sexuality, and identity. The current divisive political climate finds people seeking a means to come together and find a common understanding. The YAMs believe in the unifying force of art and seek to create a safe space of expression and dialogue. GENDERED is a group exhibition featuring twenty-four artists from across the country and representing a variety of viewpoints through diverse mediums that invites viewers to join the conversation.
GENDERED was created with great purpose. “In just a few short years, the United States has seen legislation regarding LGBTQ equality, the first female presidential nominee, broadened definitions of gender identity, and the evolution of masculinity and femininity in the home and workforce. While American attitudes towards gender have become increasingly progressive, there still persists gender and sexuality discrimination. Gendered seeks to create an inclusive arts forum for gender and its common intersectionalities with race, class, sexuality, and identity,” stated by the Young Affiliates of the Mint on their website.
