InLiquid Open Call: Remembering the Suffragists, 100 years of Women Voting in the United States
deadline: Saturday, August 1, 2020
Remembering the Suffragists, 100 years of Women Voting in the United States, curated by Patricia Moss-Vreeland for InLiquid, is seeking work in response to the 100th year anniversary of the passing of the 19th amendment!
How does this moment in time bring meaning to you? Is there an experience you have had that influences you and your work? Any medium, image and/or text, any form that expresses how you want to approach this, as an extension to your practice, expression of who you are as a womxn, as a citizen, as a tribute to the Suffragists, that resonates with your personal experiences is welcome.
This online exhibition will include various forms of media with the goal of stimulating conversation by representing a diversity of voices and the many ways of expressing ourselves. Art’s ability to represent history and personal narrative is its own form of activism. By revisiting history we have the opportunity to question what is written versus what is undocumented, and to carve out the often ignored truths. By remembering, we can continue this historic work led by a group of very diverse women, the Suffragists. It’s in their stories and sacrifices we find courage, grit, persistence, friendship, and often-contrasted feelings.
As we expand our collective history through our unique responses, we build bridges to each other and to the future. Remembering the Suffragists, 100 years of Women Voting in the United States offers a chance to come together in recognition of the Women’s Suffrage Movement, and question what that means to us as womxn, as well as to draw a connection to current and ongoing inequalities that still must be fought.
