The Program in Visual Arts presents an exhibition of new work by Princeton senior Kyra Gregory.
The Lady’s Room focuses around a bathroom, which Gregory shared with her mother and older sister, in the house where she grew up. Gregory notes that the bathroom, deemed “The Lady’s Room” by her mother through a light switch cover she made when Gregory’s family moved into the house, creates an environment of traditional hyper-femininity through its decoration. Gregory uses collage and woodblock relief printing as modes of deconstruction and subsequent reconstruction of The Lady’s Room and thus the definitions of womanhood, gender, and sexuality that live within it. The show features a series of large-scale collages made of drawings, prints, and photographs alongside other works that live within the theoretical space of The Lady’s Room, prioritizing the experiences of queer and trans individuals.
