Two local visual artists, Sherazad Jamal and Cat L'Hirondelle co-curate “The F Word” in celebration of International Women's Day and to explore the status and meaning of feminism from the perspectives of nine Metro Vancouver women of different ages and cultural backgrounds.  Feminism is a word that evokes emancipation, empowerment and equality in some, while in others evokes fear, threat and loss. In any kind of sweeping societal change, one seeks to dismantle oppressive power structures to create something new, these kinds of conflicting emotions arise, along with debate, chaos and explorative art.  

This show seeks to explore feminism from the perspectives of Metro Vancouver women of differing ages and cultural backgrounds.  The work of 13 visual artists will be selected for a group show and complemented by workshops, panel discussions and community art projects.
