Jen Lewis, the internationally recognized conceptual artist and menstrual designer behind Beauty in Blood, a bold art project that confronts social taboos pertaining to menstruation, will be a guest on The Womb Happy Hour online radio show with host, Lorraine Giordano on VoiceAmerica Health & Wellness.
Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/28/2017 -- Beauty in Blood is a transformative macrophotography and video art project. The catalyst of Lewis' project was switching tampons and pads to a menstrual cup that changed every facet of her life. The menstrual cup directly led to seeing menstrual fluid as an art medium; and using visual art to confront menstrual stigma in pop culture. In 2012, Lewis began creating her menstrual designs with her husband, Rob. Creative efforts to expand the scope of the project in 2017 are underway.
Her work has been displayed in group exhibitions internationally, such as Women at the Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit (United States), Period Pieces at the Urban Artroom (Sweden), the 9th Annual Juried Art Show at The Kinsey Institute (United States) and Art to Change the World at ArtPrize® (United States) and, most recently, the sold-out Nasty Women Exhibition at the Knockdown Center in New York City. Her work can also be seen in The Vagina Dispatches video series produced by The Guardian. In June 2015, Jen curated a special theme exhibit for the joint conference of the Society for Menstrual Cycle Research and the Center for Women's Health and Human Rights entitled "Widening the Cycle: A Menstrual Cycle and Reproductive Justice Art Show."
Lewis will join The Womb Happy Hour on VoiceAmerica Health and Wellness channel on March 1, 2017 at 3PM Pacific / 6 PM EST.
