curated by Jay Menendez
The Male Gaze refers to the use of specific camera angles and perspectives of the female body in popular media intended to appeal to a heterosexual male audience.
THE GAZE call invites artists to explore varied perspectives of the human form.
Artists may choose to portray their subjects in a way that would appeal to a target audience of the artist's choosing. Artists may also present the figure in a way intended to defy or counter the concept of "gaze."
The goal of THE GAZE is to celebrate, rather than exploit, the human form via perspective. Artists are encouraged to represent people of varied backgrounds and walks of life.
