Women: Relationship and Identity

Women are generally viewed as the more relational gender. At times, a woman’s identity appears to be defined through her relationships. Family, child, spouse, partner, employer, self… Whether implicit or explicit, self-imposed or from society, what characteristics make these and other relationships unique? In what way do they contribute to a sense of identity? Women artists are invited to explore their idea of relationship through any media (3-D space limited but available).
