Our next Workspace Exhibition features large-scale sculpture work by artist and visual designer Shawna X in her new series “F*** Your Manners.”
Having been embarrassed by her parent’s eating manners, Shawna X found inspiration for her series when she began wondering why: Why is it rude to slurp noodles, when slurping is the way to savor the flavor? Why is eating with our hands a faux pas? Why don’t we eat every part of an animal? Why did she feel embarrassment in the first place?
F*** Your Manners is a renewed appreciation of etiquettes that have been deemed impolite by the Western Gaze, yet openly accepted by the Other. In a time and space when 'diversity' has nearly become a commodity, this body of work asks you, the viewer, to evaluate your conditioned mentality.
Meet Workspace Member Shawna X and preview her exhibit at the opening party.
RSVP for the opening party on June 7.
On view at A/D/O from June 8 - June 29.
Exclusive prints will be on sale at the A/D/O shop.
