Binary gender profiling begins pre-birth. Testing assigns a sex in utero and the inculcation of the gender divide begins, from the unveiling parties that have arisen with gendered cakes assigned colors and symbols to highly specific offerings in clothing, toys and accessories for children. From the boy/girl lineup present in many schools to the numbers of women entering STEM careers, gender is ubiquitous, LISTEN: Artists Respond to Politics, explores the diversity of responses among 13 cis and trans women and gender non-conforming artists to our current political times and the #MeToo movement.

MANIFOLD showcases four artists who take up colorful abstraction in painting and drawing to stretch the space that these two-dimensional mediums inhabit and depict. Amidst fragmented resonances of abstract forms, Nate Flagg, Alex Jackson, Nadia Haji Omar, and Alexandria Smith depict somersaulting bodies and shimmering ciphers to explore a kind of vibrating space that exists just below the surface, a ripe space where bodies fold and twist as two-dimensional beings occupying and expanding three-dimensional space.
