Galería de la Raza is pleased to present Womxn Are Perfect! The works in this exhibition define and reclaim what perfection means by, for and about self-identifying womxn. Through different mediums and approaches, the featured artists in this exhibition challenge hetero-normative narratives of womxn perfection. The works offer a celebration of taboo bodies, sexual identities, self-love and awareness of self-worth that stand in opposition to oppressive systems and expectations. The exhibiting artists emerge with a contemporary, unapologetic and relentless vision of womxn perfection.
