PLACE Architecture 735 N.W. 18th Ave., Portland, OR 97209
Fused Creative, a woman-operated art collective, is pleased to announce its upcoming April pop-up show: The Feminine Era.
Society dictates what it means to be feminine. The feminine has been relegated to second class citizenry; it has been painted as weak, compliant and as a pretty decoration for empty vessels. For centuries, the cultural narrative demands that femininity is defined by taking up as little space as possible and to be palatable to all others but ourselves.
The women of Fused Collective refuse and say: "In the year of our ladies Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Lindy West, Laverne Cox, Stormy Daniels, Letitia James, Ilhan Omar, Cardi B and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, we can do better."
Fused Creative’s line-up of incredible multi-media talents are powerfully redefining what femininity means, what it looks like, and who it belongs to through comedy, music, poetry, visual art, and dance.
Fused Creative, founded in 2018 by Jessica Green and Meg Nanna, generates a platform for artistic experimentation, vulnerability and unique integration of a variety mediums. Fused Creative is building a local Pacific Northwest community for artists, by artists. Fused Collective cultivates a space where creatives grow through response to modern motifs and topical subject matter, collaborate with other local artists and cultivate their singular visions into a communal expression of art and humanity. Fused Creative facilitates the showcasing of this eclectic curation of art and artists to a larger audience in an effort to spark greater critical thought and commentary.
