Dis…Miss is a public visual art experience with short videos, postcards, and audience engagement. 40 outstanding L.A. artists are instigating dialogues online and in various public settings around evolving perceptions and attitudes about gender and intersectional feminism. The videos, performances and images present nuanced ideas on these complex topics as they simultaneously aim to confront stubborn inequalities and stereotypes in our culture today. Freewaves’ audience engagements take the form of screenings, workshops, discussions and audience interactions in the greater Los Angeles area and beyond.
