Behold examines the ways in which gender is and has been represented within The Suter collection. Hyper-masculine physicality, stoic intelligence, contentious domesticity, and fragmented femininity are each exposed by the artists included in the exhibition. Their use or subversion of gender tropes within their artworks allow us to question the role gender plays in the way we understand art and ourselves.
