Description

The Dennis R. Neill Equality Center will host an exhibition entitled “Digital Divas”, by internationally recognized Sculptor Slim Cook from September 7 to October 2, 2017 with an opening reception from 6 to 9pm on September 7th

Slim, a native born Tulsan, recently moved his Art Studio from NYC to Tulsa after over 20 years away. This will be his first solo exhibition to take place here and his first exhibit to deal openly with LGBTQ issues. The show will address gender image, body modification and sexual status equality.

Slim muses about the implications of his art: "As the future unfolds, and the link between humans and technology becomes more personal, intimate and pervasive, we will gain an increasing power to shape and alter our own minds and bodies. Will humans and technology evolve into a kind of symbiotic life form? If we could build our own bodies, what choices would we make? In the future will the concept of "gender" become obsolete? How this evolution will affect the way we see ourselves, including ideas about beauty, gender-identity and body enhancement are the primary subjects of this exhibition.

This exhibition is funded in part by a generous grant from the OVAC.
