Effeminate is the second series of magazine collages for The Magazine Project (TMP) and was created in 2016-17. This body of work explores feminine identity through the lens of mass communication and abstraction. Palmeri uses this platform to experiment with various drawing methods that confront idealizations of women in advertising. The public will be invited to create their own magazine collages during various exhibits around the country. In early 2018, TMP will publish the first volume of “Reassembled”, a collection of these collages, reassembled and reprinted in magazine format. This publication examines how the arts and advertising can contribute to addressing social change. A portion of each volume’s sales will be donated to nonprofit organizations dedicated to promoting gender equality.
