con-vHER-sa-tions is an interactive art exhibition presented by educator and advocate Tasha Douge with the support of Harlem United, a New York-based organization that provides support for those living HIV and AIDS.
For 2 days, visitors are welcomed into an open art gallery, where they can freely explore and take part in this interactive exhibition. (Visitors have the option to come on either day or both days.) The theme is Women Empowerment, but in order to be empowered, we have to talk about everything. This includes the beauty of our diversity, but also the things that plague us as women. The art will be provocative and is meant to elicit authentic, raw and at times, uncomfortable feelings. From those feelings, the goal is to spark open and honest conversations. Overall, the hope is one will emerge with a better sense of what the female experience encompasses which in turn, leads to understanding and better connections. Everyone, 16 and older, is welcome to attend.
Featured Guests will include Aleathia Brown (artist), Natassia Constantine (artist), Giannina Gutierrez (artist), and a few more.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the Alliance for Lupus Research and the Endometriosis Foundation of America.
