Kniznick Gallery, Women's Studies Research Center (Epstein)

Through May 28

The Kniznick Gallery presents Hellbent, a solo exhibition by Ariel Basson Freiberg. Drawing from narratives and representations of Salome, the young woman who lasciviously danced in exchange for the head of John the Baptist, Freiberg beckons us to consider the nature of the infamous performance in relation to desire, gender, sexuality, and power. 

Register to visit the gallery (Brandeis community only).

The Kniznick Gallery is committed to feminist exhibitions of artistic excellence that reflect the activities of the Women's Studies Research Center Scholars and engage communities within and beyond Brandeis. The art on display is a vehicle through which the Center seeks to promote dialogue about important issues and address the ever-changing challenges related to women and gender.
