Canadian artist and fashion photographer Petra Collins will explore the female gaze in a live, three-hour tableau at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
The event, which will take place tomorrow night, is part of the MoMA’s PopRally series which aims to include young and diverse audiences in art and the museum. The event will also feature live musical performances and hopes to investigate how the female form is represented in society and art with a special focus on Instagram. In reference to Instagram’s censorship practices, the exhibit will not include any nudity.
Speaking to Vogue, Collins said:
“We are also choosing not to use nudity because it is a classic way of categorizing what is feminine, we want this piece to not be just about the female form. We don’t want to define what it means to be feminine with a nude body.”
