The Colour of Gender

The Colour of Gender

Allandra Ryan


I’m Allandra, a fourth-year student at Toronto Metropolitan University majoring in Professional Communication with a minor in Communication Design. Visual art has always been a passion of mine, so it has been a wonderful experience blending creativity and academia throughout my time at Toronto Metropolitan University. I’m excited to take the skills I have learned at TMU and develop them further in the working world!

Research Summary

I designed an exhibit on gendered colours and objects for my creative research project. For the exhibit, I made six images that feature gendered objects painted in a colour associated with the opposite gender. Participants are asked to label each image as masculine or feminine. My goal is that viewers of my exhibit will start questioning their idea of gender and its connection to colour in their everyday lives.
