Asserting our space : an observation of the patriarchy
An observation of the patriarchy
As part of a class project, taught by Margaret Carsello in the Spring of 2015 in the Department of Contemporary Practices, the students observed cultural and social signs and codes that uphold patriarchal power structures. For 14 days, with a heightened awareness in daily life, they collected and analyzed language, gestures, visual cultural, and normative behavior that organize gender. This project is a collaborative visual response of their findings. The box houses 16 smaller boxes, one for each student and the instructor. Participating artists are: Rose Accola, Maribel Ang, Sarah-Michael Batey, Kaylee Crawford, Bella Emmerich, Claire Fields, Yeon Suh Kim, Amanda McLin, Margaret Merriott, Zee Peng, Naomi Powers, Joy Shin, Yifeng Wang, Erica Wilcox, Serinah Dayoung Yeo and Margaret Carsello .
