Rated Pink Exhibition

  • Shade John

Rated Pink is a play on the certificate of "Rated R", a well-recognised category used within rating systems worldwide to describe media content for restricted audiences and viewing. The use of black females presented in this series is with intention, to normalise the use of black women or illustrations of black women in art. With 'Rated Pink', I am mixing the themes of certification, ratings and female. There are elements of restrictions placed on females, things that females are expected to keep within themselves or between their gender.
