Responsorial: The Second Sex and the Contemporary Dialectics of Misogyny

 “ Woman will not accept her status as the inessential unless she becomes again the essential in the very act of abdication. “ -Simone De Beauvoir, The Second Sex

When we explore the feminine problem today how do we consider nature, creation, and perception with related histories and myths? How does the role women occupy in creation intersect with their existence as essential or inessential in other creative and intellectual realms ? Roland Barthes states in Camera Lucida that he was, “ Straining toward the essence of her identity, struggling among images partially true, and therefore totally false.

The New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts invites submissions of artwork that explores themes of the multifaceted relationship between nature, femininity, and creation as informed by the contemporary social climate.

Please submit one image for consideration, an artist’s bio, and cv in a single email to by June 30. The exhibition will take place the first Saturday of September 2018. Artwork delivery by August 15. Artists are responsible for delivery and pick up of all artwork. Artists currently enrolled in school are not eligible to apply.


The New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts is a non-profit Institution dedicated to the advancement and serious study of the Fine Arts in the ancient disciplines of drawing, painting, and sculpture.
