Rosebud Woman Brings Sensing Woman to NYC to Catalyze Creative Dialogue, Raise Funds for Women's Health
NEW YORK, Sept. 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sensing Woman, a gathering of contemporary art, provocative dialogue, storytelling, music, and human connection to benefit women's health, will be held from Sept. 27 until Oct. 1 at C24 Gallery, in New York City's Chelsea Art District, with a global simulcast. The event is designed to ignite a new kind of conversation on living in a female body; educate and shift beliefs; amplify our collective energy for a more gender-just future; raise funds for organizations working to ensure body sovereignty and women's health. Tickets are available to the public for live events and via global simulcast.
Executive Producer and Rosebud Woman Founder Christine Marie Mason speaks to the timeliness of the show. "The timing of the show is vital: we need every person who cares about reproductive independence to activate now, and this is better sustained from a deeply felt internal sense of worth than from willpower or outrage."
Curator Christina Massey, artist and founder of WoArt Blog, has selected artists from a wide variety of backgrounds, ethnicities, ages, and experiences. There is diversity in the topics and inspirations, materials and styles, and experiences of the artists themselves. Christina was drawn to the relationship of the feminine experience and how, in the context of the show, it also almost appears bodily and internal, a guttural response to the collective experience of women.
Daytime programming includes midday councils and artist talks on female embodiment now, with the work of 32 contemporary female artists, and 40 game-changing speakers in media, medicine, policy, ecology, spirituality and more.
Evening events include an opening night benefit party with V (formerly Eve Ensler) on 9/27, a multigenerational story night led by Jessica Lore and Georgia Clark of Generation Women on 9/28, and a closing party of embodied sensual activation on 9/30 with Lizzy Jeff.
Christine Mason says, "Sensing Woman is designed to be circular, sensual, present, ceremonial and impactful. We will listen deeply to the wisdom and insight of those who are imagining what a new world might look like, and we will raise funds for sexual health, reproductive equity, and self-determination. We are preparing for a potent surge to advance gender justice for all people."
