It is comprised of thirteen sculptures, four looped videos and seven limited-edition prints. The event includes a lecture by the artist, and is accompanied by body-swapping performances by local participants wear Stein’s sculptures.
TO INSPIRE AND EMPOWER PEOPLE TO LIVE FEARLESSLY
A laboratory for social change, HAWT fosters acceptance of evolving expressions of gender through artistic media and dynamic intellectual exchange.
With art as a starting point, HAWT empowers people to more easily reach their personal authenticity and, beyond themselves, accept diversity in others.
With exhibits/lectures/performances, HAWT addresses issues of oppression, including racism/sexism/ableism/homophobia as seen through the lens of bullying.
