Transforming PoliticsAugust 20, 2020 - December 27, 2020
United Company Contemporary Regional Art Gallery
As we celebrate the centennial of women’s suffrage, we celebrate a women-led movement that sparked a transformation of politics around the world. The suffragettes used their artistic skills, creativity and resourcefulness in order to make history and, although some political affairs have changed, the passionate interests of women have not. Women continue to make their voices heard in conversations surrounding climate change, labor, societal values, economic class, the #metoo movement, LGBTQ+ rights, educational reform etc. Transforming Politics: Art Made by Women features the work of four regional artists that take an active political stance on the aforementioned topics. Artists Margaret Gregg, Kathleen Thum, Laken Bridges and Alex Younger use their artwork to project their voices, thus allowing them to be heard and empowering them to continue transforming politics.
