CONSIDERING MASCULINITY UNIVERSALLY AND THROUGH A QUEER LENS, MASC IS A LOUD DECLARATION THAT PUTS THE "IMMACULATE" AMERICAN MANHOOD INTO QUESTION. IN COLLABORATION WITH NYC FILMMAKER, GUS REED, THE WORK FEATURES ORIGINAL VIDEO PROJECTION AND TEXT HIGHLIGHTING PERSONAL HISTORIES AND THE CURRENT SOCIAL LANDSCAPE surrounding masculinity.

MASC SEEKS TO RE-SCULPT THE IMAGE OF MALENESS AND TURN STONE TO FLOWERS—OBJECTIFYING THE MALE FORM AND RADICALLY SOFTENING ITS STOIC EXTERIOR.
