Titled NSFW Female Gaze, the new all-women show brings together over 25 of the art world’s most exciting talents to create a dialogue that’s as multifaceted as sexuality itself. It’s the latest in a string of visiting exhibitions aimed at exploring society’s continually changing perceptions of sexual norms at the museum. From large-scale sculptures to digital videos, textiles, photographs, and paintings, it’s the kind of show that poses as many questions as it answers—a clever and intentional feat by its curators, Marina Garcia-Vasquez and Lissa Rivera, who worked together on its conception from start to finish.

Art that was self-reflective and about female empowerment was the first thing on my mind.”
