Definition of Man:


An individual human; especially :  an adult male human:  humankind:  a bipedal primate mammal (Homo sapiens) that is anatomically related to the great apes but distinguished especially by notable development of the brain with a resultant capacity for articulate speech and abstract reasoning, is usually considered to form a variable number of freely interbreeding races, and is the sole living representative of the hominid family:  one possessing in high degree the qualities considered distinctive of manhood.


The quality or state of being manly :  manliness.



The Man Show explores the viewpoints, conceptual ideas and images from artist with various backgrounds, cultures, experiences and ideologies.


The show investigates attitudes, stereotypes and expectations of the definition of Manhood in the last 50 years. "The Man Show" examines the role of the male figure in today's society as changes take place in the family social structure, the workplace, politics, gender roles and belief systems in our everyday life.


Cultural attitudes due to immigration, the increase in single parent households and the debate of equal pay, for women and minorities have questioned the meaning of fairness in a male dominant society. This also extends to the incarceration and homicide rate among minority groups and the acceptance of alternative lifestyles that have created households headed primarily by either a male only or female only parent structure.
