The gender spectrum ranges linearly from 100% male to 100% female, with states of androgyny in between. And today, the distinction between gender identity and biological sex has never been sharper and, concurrently, blurrier. The U-M Institute for Research on Women and Gender and the Women’s Studies Department presents this important exhibition: Re-imagining Gender. MFA students enrolled at Michigan and CIC member universities (Big Ten Universities, University of Chicago) offer 17 works in a variety of media, including photography, paint, lithograph, mixed media, and video, which reflect various understandings of gender identity.

Monday through Friday, 8am-5pm, Lane Hall Gallery, 500 South State St. 734-764-1817.
