Emily Wiethorn: A Certain Kind of Woman

Emily Wiethorn: A Certain Kind of Woman

January 16 – February 22, 2020 Opening Reception: January 16, 2020, 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Art Room presents A Certain Kind of Woman, a colorful and dynamic body of work created by Cincinnati-based artist Emily Wiethorn. This contemporary exhibition includes a series of self-portrait photographs that explore female identity, gender roles, and self-discovery. The show runs January 16 through February 22, 2020.


Wiethorn writes, “Hidden behind expected social roles, our inner identity can become lost. Through my work, I explore what happens when our masks become so convincing that we no longer recognize ourselves.”


Through the intoxicating use of feminine patterns and gestures, Emily Wiethorn uses performance to confront her own use of disguise to fit into the social construct of what it means to be female. Ultimately, she challenges the viewer through her carefully calculated use of backdrops, costuming, body language, and gaze. Wiethorn’s photographs are autobiographical in nature yet demand a universal appreciation and understanding of the societal pressures to be “a certain kind of woman.” 


Art Room is open to the public and will host an opening reception for A Certain Kind of Woman on January 16, 2020, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
