We Interrupt This Program Again

We will be hosting an Art Gallery for a week

“We Interrupt This Program…Again” is the second installment of an art show aimed at disrupting the strait male gaze. The first “We Interrupt This Program” debuted at Tectonic Space Art Gallery in Baltimore, MD in 2018, and this year we bring an illustration focused show to Anyone Comics in Brooklyn.The show opens June 27 at 6pm and will be on view from June 27- July 3, 2019.

In Laura Mulvey’s 1975 essay “Visual and Other Pleasures”, the concept of the male gaze in cinema is outlined as a visual narrative controlled by an active male character and a passive female character. Simply put, the story is told, and viewed by the audience, through the eyes of a heterosexual male. Consequently, the story depicts the female character in “their traditional exhibitionist role” and are “looked at and displayed”.

Despite depicting imaginary worlds where anything is possible, all too often sci-fi and fantasy artistic mediums fall victim to the “male gaze”, objectifying women, underutilizing depth of character development, or failing to cast women as well as members of the LGBTQA community in central roles. “We Interrupt this Program..” Is an art show aimed to disrupt the strait male gaze in sci-fi and fantasy mediums.
