Hyde Cabinet #23:
Contre Le Sexism

Hyde Cabinet #23: Contre Le Sexism pairs a photograph of Kim Gordon by Chris Cuffaro with the album insert from a CD edition of A Thousand Leaves by Sonic Youth to explore seemingly contradictory concepts of girlhood and femininity. Together, these works evoke playfulness and angst, resilience and vulnerability, challenging sexist expectations about how women should respond when faced with adversity or when stepping into the spotlight.
“Contre Le Sexism” is the opening track to the A Thousand Leaves album and presents feminist themes found in Sonic Youth’s songs.
