CALL FOR WOMEN ARTISTS!
This Deadline Expired: Friday, June 12, 2020
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, which granted women the right to vote. However, after the ratification, voting struggles continued for marginalized groups. This fall, Main Line Art Center will present a juried exhibition of 19 contemporary women and female-identifying artists whose work responds to 100 years of women’s suffrage and the women’s rights movement then and now. This exhibition will not only be a commentary on historic events but a deeper conversation of contemporary inequality by a variety of voices.
Artists should apply with artwork that explores and responds to the following questions:
What do 100 years of women’s suffrage mean today – where are we now? How have marginalized groups been a catalyst for change throughout history? Artists should consider current events and their personal identity, in shaping their response.
DEADLINE: Friday, June 12, 2020, by 11:59 p.m.
