Hera Gallery Call for Entry

Hera Gallery Presents the Exhibition: SHAME

Juried by: Anna Dempsey

Concept: The exhibition SHAME attempts to lift the veils of submission and silence by exploring shame in its many dimensions. The concept of shame has reached a new level of urgency as we witness shaming being used as a strategic tactic in the current political climate where it has become common place and legitimized. Rather than purposefully confronting shame we are prone to step away from taking a close look at it’s nature and manifestations.
