Sexism has a long history of supporting constructed gender roles, building stereotypes, fostering violence, and creating damaging ideals. The Museum of Sexist Objects (MoSO) on the Ferris State University campus, has a growing collection
of over 2,500 everyday historic and contemporary objects that exhibit sexism, gendered violence, and stereotypes. Their collection provides a framework that raises awareness about sexism and encourages scholarly dialogue and research.
Alongside these objects from the MoSO collection, four contemporary artists examine and question the outcomes of sexist attitudes and actions within their own practices. Whether the focus is power, faith, race, or queerness, each artist grapples with the complexities and nuances of sexist tropes to challenge the politics of gender.
