This exhibition is on view at SBCAST from March 8-April 26 in Studio D and E. The public is invited to attend Stein’s artist lecture on Saturday, March 10 at 2:00 p.m. at SBCAST.
In partnership with the Squire Foundation, SBCAST is proud to host The Fluidity of Gender: Sculpture by Linda Stein, a traveling multi-media solo exhibition that has traveled to more than twenty-four museums and universities around the country.
As an artist and keynote speaker and lecturer for peace and equality, Stein critiques egregious patterns of injustice and gender-based violence in our culture, invoking a more egalitarian, enlightened experience of gender identity. “My goal,” Stein says, “is to use my art to transform social consciousness and promote activism for gender justice. With my androgynous forms I invite the viewer to seek out diversity in unpredictable ways, to ‘try on’ new personal avatars and self-definition, realizing that every new experience changes the brain’s structure and inspires each of us toward a more authentic self.” Have you wondered what feeling more masculine or feminine would actually be like? Or what it would be like to try on a more masculine or more feminine avatar on your physical body? Linda Stein will help you experience that, and more, through her unique gender-empowering wearable sculptures.
Linda Stein’s exhibition opens to the public at SBCAST on March 8th, 5:00-8:00 pm, and will remain on view by appointment through April 25th, 2018. An interactive lecture with the artist will be held at SBCAST on Saturday, March 10th 2:00:-4:00pm and on March 22nd 5:30-8:30 at CRAV: the Squire Foundation Fundraiser event.

Stein will be in Santa Barbara for the month working on current artworks as one of three artists participating in the spring Artist in Residence program of the Squire Foundation.
