YONIC is a curated exhibit examining the work of artists at the MFA Fine Arts program at Parsons The New School for Design.  The exhibit will encompass drawing, painting, and installation [photo, object, video and intervention].  The work shown will attempt to examine and expand upon the concepts of femininity, outside of biological sex and hetero-normative social cues.  This work attempts to question the pervasive and yet unknown femininity omnipresent in current culture.

25 East Gallery, 25 E. 13th St, 5th Floor// Opening Reception: Tuesday, 26 February 2013, 6-9pm// Exhibit runs from 25 February - 8 March.

Artists include: Elysa Batista, Lauren Denitzio, Sarah Allen Eagen, Sara Jimenez, Jessica Posner, Kai Margarida-Ramirez, Isaac Richard Pool, & Alejandro Yoshii.
