A few days ago, we had posted an invitation to the R.A.P.E. Show. The Hindu, today carried an article about this show.
“‘The exhibition seeks to bring in a variety of visual responses to the atrocious notion of seeing women as secondary citizens. Why should women be objectified? Despite all the feminist interventions, women are still subjected to discrimination in the public and private domains. Physical violence against women in the form of criminal assaults is not a biological act of the perverts but a strong imposition of power that often goes unchecked and unpunished.’
As a curator, Johny does not expect the artists to literally translate this issue into visual metaphors. Instead he would like them to look at the whole idea of re-awakening of the conscience in the face of a crisis like this.”
