In Honor of Women’s History Month, WOMYN’S WERQ
An Open Call for an Old School, LGBTQIA-friendly, Radical Feminist Art Exhibition
This exhibition will be a hybrid of both virtual and onsite components. An open call to all who identify as radical feminists for two-dimensional and three-dimensional art works, and short video art pieces serving as visual narratives based on the mantra that the personal is political. What embodies radicalism on an artistic level, is it the artist’s engagement with protest, activism, cultural organizing? Is it the materials used or the content the artist takes up? Show us the manifestations of the work that fueled your survival through the past 4 years and preserved your hope for a brighter future!
With a strong focus on inclusion, we seek and encourage ALL artists who may identify as gender-fluid, eco-femme, queer/trans and old school butch/femme artists.
