“Uncovered Spaces is an exhibition and event series centered on female artists, including young women, queer, and non-binary artists, concerning the social structures that mediate our everyday experiences. Uncovered Spaces will articulate ideas through art that relate to women’s cultural expectations and the social norms that challenge or oppress women, as well as ways that protect and support them. This international exhibition of 13 artists and scholars will be held from March 26 through July 10, 2022 at the International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS). Participating artists and scholars have been invited through a curatorial process that values a diversity of perspectives. The event venues will serve as a space for women, female-identifying artists, non-binary artists, and scholars to discuss their work, research, interests, and strengths regarding gender, identity, and social norms. The project also seeks to reveal connections between the creative process, feminine solidarity, diversity, and shared knowledge while creating a model for a community arts-based research project in south Texas. While our main concern is to examine how art can engage and offer a critical re-thinking of current social and political issues, the broader implications touch upon the foundations of art practice and our many lives’ existential issues. This exhibition is supported by the Alice Kleberg Reynolds Foundation, the Raul Tijerina, Jr. Foundation, H-E-B, the College of Fine Arts, the Vanderbilt Center for Latin American, Caribbean, and Latinx Studies, and the UTRGV Center for Latin American Arts.”
