Man to Man: Expectation, Performance, and Desire within the Male Gender

Chadric Devin

Saturday, March 14 - 11:15AM to 11:35AM
Celestin A

Growing up I felt an overwhelming responsibility and pressure from my father to participate in athletics and display his preconceived ideas of masculine behavior. American culture and society, in the same way, has constructed its own set of archetypes that dictate maleness and the ways in which men are expected to interact and perform their gender. My work explores the complications of these expectations, the complexity of the social relationships formed between males, and my desire to understand how history, meaning, and experience can be reshaped and understood through the physicality of interacting with materials.
