In this solo exhibition Diana Benavidez uses piñatas as medium to reflect on her identity as Mexican-American Woman. The works depicted in this exhibition aim to provoke public dialog about conventionally private topics regarding women's relationship to the objects presented as piñatas. Through these works she further investigates the topic of taken for granted objects to explore social stigmas, judgements, and violence against women. Other topics explored in this exhibition include taboos, misconceptions, and accessibility to feminine hygiene products, American beauty standards, and rape culture.
