The masculine wins, but where?
From 11th to 15th March 2019
Opening on 10th March at 7:00pm
The Sorbonne Artgallery welcomes Miss.Tic, a major street art artist and street poet. This exhibition at the Sorbonne Artgallery resonates with International Women’s Rights Day, celebrated every year on March 8, and this year’s theme is “Think and Innovate for Change”. In this context, the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne wishes, driven by the impact of the creation of Miss.Tic, to mobilize the academic world and think about innovative ways to advance gender equality.
In line with the history of feminist struggles (workers, suffragettes) at the beginning of the 20th century, International Women’s Rights Day converges with a critical and active posture formalized since 1977 by the United Nations. Unfortunately, it is still relevant, given the persistent inequalities between men and women. Women’s rights remain one of the major struggles of our time, in all communities, all walks of life, all ages. Miss.Tic democratizes an art in direct connection with our soma. Her sincerity and artistic relevance coincide at this precise moment with the impacting will of the images conveyed by those who today consider art in the capacity to propose, often through the image, at the heart of our collective consciousness, what Marie-José Mondzain calls an exercise of freedom, especially through subjective operations that directly involve the spectator. It is here, in the visible, that something digs out and escapes the reduction of what Miss-Tic shows us. With a history that converges with many women’s trajectories, Miss.Tic is today the ambassador of the Education and Gender Equality Goals, which are at the heart of the UN’s priorities. The Miss.Tic stencil turns into a sensitive form and material. Beyond its plastic quality, it invites us to resist and think about the emancipation of women and their rights. This being of art thus indicates with tact one being of, a possible extension of self to the other. The virtue of each part of the artist’s body, with its generously symbolic plastic, is offered to everyone in the public space of the University. Miss-Tic becomes, at the turn of a street transformed for the occasion in the gallery Soufflot, part of our imaginations.
So, what could be more natural for Miss.Tic to embody for us a deep connection with the issue of women’s rights and
associated with the activism of the suffragettes by his action the illustrious René Cassin. Miss.Tic, as the expanse/standard of a growing influence, addresses its irrevocable demands to us through its corrosive epigrams. It’s up to us.
