March 2 - April 7, 2018
Opening Reception: Friday, March 9
Colorado Photographic Arts Center, 1070 Bannock St., Denver 80204
Gender disparity has long influenced how we look at art and art history. Traditionally, men are the artists and viewers, while women are confined to the role of the muse: subjects to be painted, sculpted, and photographed by and from the male perspective.

In contrast, Role Reversal presents the work of three women photographers whose images challenge long-held perceptions of beauty and gender roles in visual culture.

Join CPAC for an Opening Reception next Friday, March 9, featuring remarks by exhibiting artists Christa Blackwood and Jessica Yatrofsky.
