In celebration of Women’s History Month, FemiNest advocates and explores new spaces and places for women in the home, society, culture and politics.  Through a variety of mediums, each artist investigates the concept of a nest – both figuratively and abstractly. Themes include gender-specific production and consumption, physical and emotional protection, spirituality, social behaviors inside and out of the domestic landscape, and the void in which cultural palimpsests continue to rewrite history.
