The Visable Vagina exhibition in New York

In protest to how the female genitalia is mainly only seen in pornography and almost always for the exclusive pleasure of men, this show was designed to showcase artwork that empowers the vagina and finally makes it visable to the public.
"The goal of this exhibition is to remove these prurient connotations, implicit even in works of art, ever since the pudendum was prudishly covered by a fig leaf".
Just like us, these artists feel it is time for female genitalia to be honoured and celebrated.
This exhibition attempts to free the cunt of its prissy fig leaf and display it for its true and mesmerising beauty.Thank you!!
