This is a call for artists, models and photographers for an upcoming show called: ‘Celebrate Your Breasts’
It will be a segment of the main show called: ‘Breast Implants: What Would It Take To Change Your Mind?’
The intention behind the show is to promote awareness, education and dialogue around the issue of ‘Breast Implants’. And, ultimately to promote self-esteem, self-love, self-acceptance and reclaiming personal power.
My goal is for the vast range of size, shape, tone, age (must be 19+ years), and ethnicity to be represented.
We’re bombarded with impossibly unrealistic photos that erode self-esteem.
This show is to celebrate women being who they are, in their own uniqueness; in all stages of life.
Real breasts include pre-childbirth & non-child-birth (women who have not had children); pregnant; post-childbirth & lactating; mid-life; crone; senior; post-mastectomy and any other stage or circumstance of life not mentioned here (excluding breast augmentation).
* It’s a celebration of each woman’s individual uniqueness and natural beauty *
Models (women with natural breasts) will be asked to choose words, and/or images to express what they feel about their breasts. These will be painted on their breasts/torso. Artists will depict, or even help co-create the models’ vision. Photographers will photograph them and the images will be part of a BIG collage. The photos will be non-identifying, including only breasts/torso. This is the feature component of the Celebrate Your Breasts Project.
Artists will also be invited to paint or sketch models’ breasts (or full body nude, as long as its consistent with the intention of the show (Not ‘playboy-ish’ or glossed-over media styling). All of the models must have natural breasts. The pieces must allow models anonymity. The objective is celebrating women in a way that promotes healthy imaging. Fabric Art, Ceramic Art, Body Casting, or other mediums, including written pieces, are also welcomed.
