The exhibition titled ‘Photographic Images and Matter, Japanese Prints of the 1970s’ kicked off on Friday. The exhibition is open to all at the Embassy of Japan, Panipokhari, Kathmandu from July 23 to August 4 between 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM each day.
“Not all who menstruate are women and not all women menstruate,” says SJ, who identifies them as a non-binary person. Student Ambassadors SJ, Jessica Basnet and Sneha Dahal conducted an art exhibition themed ‘Bloody Mary No More’ at Thames International College, Kathmandu from May 29 to June 1 with the slogan ‘Letsdignifymenstruation' in an effort to address various menstrual experiences among trans-people and raise awareness that cis and trans-menstruators matter and are not different in a challenging society where menstruation is a cis-normative phenomenon. The exhibition is named ‘Bloody Mary No More’ because people assume Mary is a cis woman. The exhibition attempts to discard this assumption of Mary’s gender and sex characteristics.
