DESCRIPTION

oices: An Artist’s Perspective is a feminist exhibition with 26 women artists raising their voices to tell individual stories that advocate for the fight for social, cultural, economic and political rights and the inclusion of all voices in its push for gender equality and identity using a woman's voice as the visual narrative to effect change.

Works, in all media, are displayed that speak to, examine and explore the social, political and economic issues related to women’s activism; art that expresses the women’s perspective on issues of identity, gender, women’s rights, political rights, reproductive rights, and issues of societal control and justice. The art ranges from literal to poetic, abstract to representational, and psychological, to social and political commentary. Many of the works explore the concepts of being a woman in today’s global society and how social constructs define their experience whether internal, external, imagined or imposed, and how this defined and shaped identities, relationships, ideas and politics.

It is the intention of UniteWomen.org and Karen Gutfreund Art to present these issues in visual form, creating a public forum for action, reaction, and informed discussion.
