TEDxIrie - Ebony G. Patterson - Fashion Ova' Style: Beauty, Gender & Masculinity

Topic: Fashion Ova' Style: Conversations of Beauty, Gender & the Masculinity A graduate of the Edna Manley College of Visual and Performing Arts, Ebony is an Assistant Professor in Painting at the University of Kentucky. "Beauty, gender, body and the grotesque are on going discussion in my work. I am enthralled by the repulsive, the bizarre and the objectness of bodies and the contradictions that both have to art historically and culturally. I seek to reference beauty through the use of the grotesque but visceral, confrontational and deconstructed. Ebony Patterson's vibrant talk, entitled "Fashion Ova' Style: Conversations of Beauty, Gender & the Masculinity", looked at how her art has been influenced by young Jamaican male culture; men who bleach their skin, pluck their eyebrows and wear 'bling' jewelry in defiance of racial and sexual stereotypes.
