"What Women Want" is an exploration of what women desire out of life, personally, socially, and politically. This multimedia art exhibition is linked thematically to the San Diego Repertory Theater's presentation of "In the Next Room, or The Vibratory Play," March 19-April 17 on the Lyceum Stage. This comedy by Sarah Ruhl, directed by Sam Woodhouse, is about the politics of desire and sexuality, and is set in the Victorian Era.

Information San Diego Repertory Theater

FIG, Feminist Image Group (formerly known as the San Diego Women's Figurative Group), was formed in 2009. FIG is a loose coalition of artists who meet to discuss art, see exhibitions, and support one another in our careers.

As artists, we are concerned about how women continue to be portrayed in the art world. As teachers, professionals, and feminists, we encourage our students and colleagues to be alert to sexism in its many forms. We promote an inclusive worldview that allows all voices. As friends, we aid each other in our creative and curatorial endeavors. "What Women Want" is our fourth group exhibition.
