Pink Progression @ CVA
May 31–August 18, 2018
Pink Progression addresses concepts of human rights, gender, sexual identity, feminism and inclusivity. The exhibition commemorates the solidarity established during the women’s marches of 2017 and 2018. During the marches, pink created a strong visual statement representing unity and empowerment. Over 50 local artists incorporate or respond to this hue as they explore how social interactions are affected by gender and identity expression.
