"Locker Room" is the work of Nathan Vincent, who explores gender permissions and the challenges that arise from straying from prescribed norms. The exhibition, which opens Sept. 3 in the Wallace L. Anderson Gallery at Bridgewater State University, questions the qualities of gender by considering what constitutes masculine and feminine. It critiques stereotypical gender mediums by creating "masculine objects" using "feminine processes" such as crochet, sewing and applique. The non-traditional sculpting process of crochet allows Vincent to draw attention to the sources, motivations and meanings around the challenge of defining gender identities in today's society. "Locker Room" runs through Oct. 10.
