A new exhibition looking at diversity, body positivity, and the creative work of female-identifying artists is coming to Los Angeles this week.

A new show celebrating the diversity of female-identifying bodies is coming to LA’s Subliminal Projects gallery this week. The photography-led exhibition, titled #Girlgaze Uncensored, aims to celebrate the “beautiful imperfections” of all women – particularly those who have been marginalised by society in some way.

“This uncensored experience will advance the conversation around the beauty of imperfection,” organisers revealed in a statement. “(It will) also showcase the universality of the female-identifying experience, addressing historically taboo subjects including scars, rolls, body hair, transitioning, and internal struggles such as anxiety and depression.”

The show was curated by media entrepreneur Amanda de Cadenet, who hopes that it will help to increase visibility and opportunities for young women artists. It will run from September 29th to October 28th, and will feature work from over 50 photographers. This includes, among others, Kimbra Audrey, Elinor Carucci, Robin de Puy, Samera Paz, Nolwen Cifuentes, Lauren Woods, and Flora Negri.

“We are excited to partner with Amanda and Shepard Fairey and their team at Subliminal Projects to highlight two big issues: the under-representation of the female gaze and the censorship of the female body,” added de Cadenet.
