I stopped by Walter Maciel Gallery today to check out “Gender Renaissance” by Lezley Saar which was an amazing show. I felt a touch of post-genderism in the show which was beautiful in understanding the limitations we as a society put on ourselves because of our gender. Using surrealism and the Victorian and Edwardian eras as a reference, Lezley uses personal experience to control her narrative with her own biracial identity as the narrator.
