In celebration of the ratification of the 19th amendment, “House to House: Women, Politics, and Place” examines two ideas: the domestic space women have dominated, and the public, political space where their voices are increasingly heard. The exhibit opens Sep. 26, 2020 and runs through Jan. 3, 2021.
On August 18, 1920, women in the United States gained the right to vote. A century later, women’s access to equity in the social and political sphere continues to be at the forefront of the popular consciousness, especially with the increasing visibility of women as political leaders. The exhibition investigates a spectrum of spaces where women have exercised agency from domestic spaces to beauty salons, factories and courtrooms. The multimedia exhibition, made possible with support from the Funding Arts Network, includes work by Aurora Molina, Catherine Opie, Martha Rosler, Wendy Red Star, Laurie Simmons, Mickalene Thomas, and Deborah Willis, among others.
