From Cait Munro’s article about the exhibition “NSFW: Female Gaze,” including work by Lissa Rivera:

“NSFW Female Gaze” is an attempt to push back at this by presenting female bodies and female sexuality in a way that removes men and their desires from the equation. The “NSFW” part of the title, of course, hints at the GIFs and Instagram references abound in the exhibition, but also at the reality that society still often deems a woman’s exploration of her own body “unsafe” for public consumption.

“Women use the internet as a tool for empowerment and have become more inquisitive and open about sexuality,” Rivera, who also has an artwork in the show, says in a statement. “The drive to understand our bodies and desires is now seen as ubiquitous–instead of fringe or a sign of bad character.”
