A ‘Perfect’ vision of women at La Razaby Ryan Kost

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.

Exhibiting Artists:

Cynthia Brannvall, Carolina Briseño, Carmen Castorena, Eliana Cetto, Chichis, Abijah Corpuz, Mia Duran, Trinidad Escobar, Jenelle Esparza, Crystal Galindo, Suzy Gonzalez, Julieta Granados, Olivia Hernandez, Diana Kalaji, Luz E. Magdaleno, Francis Mead, Tina Medina, Rosemary Meza-DesPlas, Liz Misterio, Breena Nuñez, Lidija Ristic, La Bala Rodriguez, RAEchel Running, Jessica Sabogal, Devika Sen, Rebekah Tarin, Cristina Velazquez, T.W.
