InLiquid Open Call: Remembering the Suffragists, 100 years of Women Voting in the United States
This Deadline Expired: Thursday, October 1, 2020
Remembering the Suffragists, 100 years of Women Voting in the United States, curated by Patricia Moss-Vreeland for InLiquid Online, is seeking work in response to the 100th year anniversary of the passing of the 19th amendment! Art’s ability to represent history and personal narrative is its own form of activism.
This online exhibition will include a diversity in media, voices, and forms of expressions. How does this moment in time bring meaning to you? Any medium, images, texts, that expresses how you approach this, as an extension to your practice, expression of who you are as a womxn, as a citizen, or as a tribute to the Suffragists, that resonates with your personal experiences is welcome. We can continue this historic work led by a group of very diverse women, along with their stories of sacrifice persistence, and courage. Their history gives us the opportunity to question what is written and to carve out the often ignored truths.
This exhibition offers a chance to come together as womxn in recognition of the Women’s Suffrage Movement, and draw a connection to current and ongoing inequalities we still fight. As we expand our collective history through our unique responses, we build bridges to each other and to the future.
– Patricia Moss-Vreeland

Her recent exhibition, In Search of Meaning: Memory Becomes Us, at EKG, University City Science Center, she worked with a neuropsychologist to explore the function of the human brain to find meaning, the different ways of knowing and self-expression, and the importance of stepping out of our silos to form relationships, relating memory to each of us and to the spaces we dwell.
