Los Angeles, Calif. – On Thursday, Nov. 17, from 7-10 p.m., Freewaves will launch its most ambitious initiative to date, entitled Dis…Miss, with a reception at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions. The reception will feature the work of 20 artists and artist collectives, together comprising a survey of the challenges facing feminism as its “fourth wave” emerges. Featured artworks address persistent issues prioritized by the second-wave feminist movement, such as workplace discrimination and sexual violence, combined with a third-wave awareness of the intersection of sexism and other forms of oppression, based on age, ethnicity, religion, or class. Finally, Dis…Miss examines how, and to what extent, contemporary feminism will adapt in response to society’s evolving understanding of the complexities of gender identity.

The Nov. 17 opening reception of Dis…Miss will include projections of 25 original videos and the public debut of 10 artist-designed postcards, each posing a provocative question related to identity. Throughout the evening, performance artists will interact with the audience to encourage and facilitate participation, using the artists’ questions to begin a dialogue about feminism and gender.

Opening Reception: Thursday, Nov. 17, 7-10 p.m.
Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, 6522 Hollywood Blvd.
Free/ Open to the Public

They are exotic because they are African, and they are also exotic because they are an extraordinary thing, they are beautiful.
