Identity Crisis: The Modern Venus

1st August 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 7th October 2016 @ 8:00 pm

The artistic works of Identity Crisis: The Modern Venus, the narrative and design have been an organic process of exploration and collaboration between creative communities of women in Edinburgh. The exhibition was formed over the course of a year, during a postgraduate research project at The University of St Andrews, and creative sessions with the women’s groups of Craigmillar Community Arts, Waverley Care and Willow. The result is a visually stunning, intellectually stimulating and emotive exhibition which provides an honest and alternative discourse to mainstream and media images of the female body, with potential to inform and influence contemporary thought and medical practice. We invite you to join us, on this special evening, for this re-evaluation of how the human body is displayed and to consider the effects of gendered imagery on your own health and wellbeing.
