CALL FOR ARTWORK: Feminism (n.): Plural (pdf)
Exhibition Dates: May 8 – June 25, 2015
“When feminism falls short of our expectations,” writes Roxane Gay in her 2014 book Bad Feminist, “we decide the problem is with feminism rather than with the flawed people who act in the name of the movement.” Inspired by the themes articulated in Gay’s book, WMG invites artists of all genders to submit works that ask us to rethink what feminism is, was, and can be.
The guiding premise of “Feminism (n.) Plural” is that feminism is not a monolithic movement but instead an ever-evolving concept. There is no capital F “Feminism” acting as the Law to which its subjects must blindly adhere—that, of course, is the very definition of Patriarchy. There are instead plural feminisms through which people of various gender identifications, ages, and cultural and ethnic backgrounds espouse and enact their belief in a just and equal society.
The thematic concept behind the exhibition “Feminism (n.) Plural” is intentionally broad; we seek work in all media whose form and/or content addresses feminism in daring, unexpected, and potentially controversial ways: for example, works that blur categories and create space for nonconforming gender identities, works that take on pop cultural framings of female experience and/or feminism, or works that explore feminist movements taking place in various cultural, ethnic, and/or geographic contexts.
When considering your entry, feel free to use your imagination and decide for yourself what you think an exhibition about plural feminism should look like—that, in the end, is what feminism is asking you to do too.
Entries may be mailed with jpgs on a CD or submit your entry with digital files (jpgs) online. Entry Fee: $30 for images of up to 3 works.
Online Entries Submit jpgs of up to three of your works on our website.
Mailed Entries Mail a cd with jpg images of up to three of your works, completed entry form, and a $30 entry fee to Woman Made Gallery, 685 N. Milwaukee Ave., Chicago, IL 60642.
