YIARA MAGAZINEView More 2018
Yiara Magazine is an annually published feminist art magazine showcasing visual and written works by Montreal undergraduate students.
This year’s cover was inspired by the intimacy exhibited in the submitted works. Many of the submissions this year dealt with feminist themes through a personal lens, laying bare the contributors’ own experiences with sexual harassment and abuses of power. The grapefruit, tender and exposed, remains acidic and tart, illustrating that vulnerability itself can be radical.
