Come and celebrate the launch of 'Men Deserve Flowers Too' Exhibition with art, music and drinks !
The launch of Men Deserve Flowers Too, an artistic social commentary celebrating masculinity in it's many forms. The multifaceted project opens up conversation surrounding gender, culture, identity and how social norms affect our relationship with nature. Inspired by the idea that men only receive flowers in death. The exhibition kick-starts the growing project and changes in attitudes towards how we treat things natural to the earth.
The Exhibition introduces:
Men Deserve Flowers Too - A 16 piece photo series with men from varying backgrounds, who open up about their experiences and personal relationship with nature. The series delves into how men feel about receiving or not receiving flowers, following diary entries from each individual.
Public portraits - A series of photographs from interviews conducted with the general public sharing their relationship with nature and masculinity. The portraits are taken in an experimental documentary style that will accompany the soon to be released film.
I See Three - A 6 Piece fashion series exploring masculinity from the black male perspective. The photographs are made up of three men who reflect the black experience in visually poetic and thought invoking ways. Inspired by Seye Isikalu and Nona Faustine, the photographs touch on the unsettling relationship black men have with the Police and the realities of black masculinity as a queer male.
There will also be a collection of curated work from talented guest creatives whose artworks have been inspired by the segments of masculinity too.
Small prints of Men Deserve Flowers Too will be signed and available to purchase. Come along to enjoy the lively atmosphere of art, networking, live djs, flower themed cocktails, and more!
