Rojas + Rubensteen Projects’ upcoming exhibition, Period., will feature a range of local Miami, American and International artists concerned with the end points and intersections between two definitions of period:
1. A portion of time determined by some recurring phenomenon.
2. A single cyclic occurrence of menstruation.
(Both of these definitions are from Merriam-Webster dictionary.)
The art on view explores the beauty (and stigma) of menstruation, movement through lunar cycles, and the experience of no longer (or never) having your period.
Opening Thursday, April 6 at 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
On View | April 6 – June 15 2017 Wednesday – Sunday, Noon – 6pm + By appointment
