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

See the first iteration of the show here.

To join the conversation, please submit work by October 1 or November 3 to be considered for the next two installments. As womxn, we have a vital role in our democracy! Follow InLiquid on social media for key developments and news about future iterations!

About the Curator

An artist, poet and author, Patricia Moss-Vreeland explores memory through science, history and language, and has come to reflect upon it as a meditation on who we are. Moss-Vreeland’s various works through diverse media and genres, go beyond expressing herself, to find points of connections, to share knowledge, and to elicit and create a new collective memory. 

Moss-Vreeland’s paintings, drawings and mixed-media works have been exhibited nationally at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Institute of Contemporary Art. Her art resides in many permanent collections, including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago and The Norton Museum. She was selected through a national competition to design the Memorial Room for the Holocaust Museum Houston, a permanent installation that earned four awards, including the American Institute of Architects Honor Award in Design.

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. Patricia Moss-Vreeland has authored and designed the book, A Place for Memory: Where Art and Science Meet, and is a TEDx speaker.

In his introduction to "Michael Kenna: A Twenty Year Retrospective", Peter Bunnell explored the notion of the “unheroic landscape,” a term that aptly described the photographer’s “concern for the land more as feeling than about the land as place.” I recognized in this characterization a kindred sensibility that continues to inform my work. I find myself drawn to both the apposition and opposition of natural and human-made elements in landscape photography, and seek to convey the emotional to and fro between timelessness and evanescence.
