SHE INSPIRES - A Group Exhibition of 60 Artists Curated by Indira Cesarine
The Untitled Space gallery is pleased to present exhibition, SHE INSPIRES, curated by gallery director and artist Indira Cesarine, featuring the work of 60 contemporary artists. In the divisive and challenging era we are currently experiencing filled with political turmoil, protest and uncertainty, it is important to reflect on those that inspire us. The exhibition, “SHE INSPIRES” will present artworks of many mediums, revolving around inspirational women that have made a positive impact on the world. Each work is an ode to a woman or group of women that has shaped our past, present and/or will help form our future. The exhibit aims to not only explore themes of inspiration of present day female role models, but also the legacy of women who have paved the way, and to inspire and empower others with visual art on the subject. The exhibit will take place from May 2- May 20, 2017, with several events to take place including an opening reception on May 2nd, a special performance by renowned dancer Katherine Crockett in collaboration with artist Laura Wehl on May 9th as well as an artist talk on May 16th.
SHE INSPIRES is presented in support of non-profit She Should Run. 10% of exhibition proceeds will benefit the non-partisan 501(c)3 organization expanding the talent pool of future elected female leaders. She Should Run started as a project in 2008 and has evolved to become a movement working to create a culture that inspires women and girls to aspire towards public leadership. She Should Run believes that women of all backgrounds should have an equal shot at elected leadership and that The United States will benefit from having a government with varied perspectives and experiences.
“We are honored to support non-profit She Should Run with this exhibit focused on inspirational women. Right now more than ever, it is time for women to take a step forward and focus on leadership in their communities and beyond. The SHE INSPIRES exhibit aims to highlight, through the work of male and female contemporary artists, women throughout history who have made a positive impact, to tell their stories, to encourage and empower. As a curator, and activist, I believe in effecting change through example. Is it possible to counter a dystopian future? SHE INSPIRES aims to emphasize inspiration as a catalyst for change.” - Curator Indira Cesarine
