Tidal Swell: a solo exhibition from Emilia Pennanen

Provocative performance and video work are featured in this solo exhibition from EMP Collective member, Emilia Pennanen.

Toppling systems of oppression and patriarchal foundations of power, Pennanen’s work places the empowerment of the feminine female at its center. By deconstructing taboos of the female body, Pennanen seeks to redefine and reinstate control and ownership of one’s own body.

Tidal Swell opens on Saturday, May 9, with a night of Pennanen’s live solo and communal performances and video installations. In addition, the opening and closing nights will feature performances works from local artists in conversation with Pennanen’s exhibition exploring patriarchal power structures in gender representation, female sexuality, body ownership, pleasure of different types of bodies, and authority of a body.. Additional artists include Carly J Bales, Hoesy Corona, Allana Clark, Noelle Tolbert, and Jennifer Wright.

May 9th 7-10 pm
Jennifer Wright, Emilia Pennanen, and Carly J. Bales

May 21st 7-10 pm
Noelle Tolbert, Carly J Bales, Marcelline Mandeng, Evan Christmas, Keenon Brice, Michael Wasteneys Stephens, and Emilia Pennanen
