Jan. 10 – Jan. 31, 2018, 68895 Perez Rd # I-27, Cathedral City, CA
All eyes will be on all-female art show ‘The New Feminist Gaze’ in January 2018 at Simeon Den Gallery, located at 68895 Perez Rd # I-27 in Cathedral City, CA. Curated by Simeon Den and Nalani Hernandez-Melo, the show explores the complexities of being a woman through the eyes of the current generation of Feminists and what it means to be a Feminist today. With a focus on women empowerment and education, Simeon Den Gallery has partnered with local feminist creative collective Wyld Womxn to activate the space and feature related programming, discussions, and performances.
Founded on June 1, 2016, Wyld Womxn is a Feminist Creative Collective based in the Coachella Valley comprised of women artists in various creative mediums. We believe in fostering creativity, wellness, community, social and political change. We empower women through arts and activism. Wyld Womxn provides a safe and inclusive space for women and people who identify as women to express and be themselves.
“Wyld Womxn is proud to partner with Simeon Den Gallery,” says the feminist collective’s founder Michelle Castillo, “The collective resonates with the gallery’s values of highlighting diversity, intergenerational connectivity, and inclusivity which helps to bridge the gaps within the community.” The slate of programs will expand upon the art show theme, creating intersectional dialogue and offering dimensions through multiple creative disciplines.

From the eclectic to the sublime, Simeon Den directs a non-traditional gallery and e-commerce enterprise that showcases his personal métier in the contemporary and temple arts. His contemporary art niche attends to the spiritual and transcendent schools, the minimalist style, the Zen aesthetic, the figurative and whimsical influences, and the political and subversive beauty of LGBTQ expressions in art. The gallery also functions as a community building effort by hosting and offering classes and workshops in the Temple Arts—yoga, tai ch’I, meditation groups, sound bath sessions, a writers circle, feng shui services, bereavement group, Zen brush painting, and various performance-based activities including Butoh Dance and live improvised music making.
