Seven artists unflinchingly explore themes of relational trauma, violations of consent, and expressions of gender fluidity.

This collection of artworks includes traditional drawing, painting, and sculpture as well as artworks created from unusual materials like latex, discarded clothing, human hair, and found objects that speak directly to the politics of the body. Text is a unifying element; many artworks combine imagery and text to convey the emotional weight and historical significance of the written word. UnderExposed reveals connections between self-censorship, oppressive gender norms, and the ongoing abuse of indigenous land via settler-colonialism.
