Inspired by events leading up to the 2016 U.S. presidential election, and the post-election landscape, the work in the exhibition Personal is Still Political confronts the ground lost, and the progress made by global women’s movements. There are two series in this exhibition:
‘Suffrage’: the charting of women's suffrage dates from different countries. The dates are painted, wiped out, and painted again to create a palimpsest; representing both the historical assertion and the absence of female representation in the history of voting rights and political office.
‘Marching’: suspended, layered, and sometimes translucent panels create a women’s march that spans decades and continents. Generations of different women, marching with different perspectives, but united in the common mission to attain equality and justice.
100% of Personal is Still Political merchandise sales (limited edition print, bumper stickers, and custom buttons) support ACLU, Center for Women and Families, and Planned Parenthood.
