An exhibition opening at Little Berlin and organized by Salomé Cosmique and Verónica Ponce de León presents the work of nineteen artists from Latin America and the United States. Their varied responses to a call about self image and the acceptance of ones body as is, is at the center of this beautiful photography exhibition of self portraiture, photographs of the self as a form of protest and rebellion where the subject matter itself forms an axis of
resistance and empowerment.
At the center of the work of these talented and bold photographers (male, female, and trans individuals) is the ability to accept their bodies as they are, and in so doing, eschewing societal conventions which seek to regulate and restrict the human body through expectations placed on gender and beauty.
Dissident Bodies seeks to empower both the artist and the audience to accept their bodies as they are.
Performance by Salomé Cosmique and Verónica Ponce de León begins at 7:00, following a community potluck at 6:00. All welcome.
