Tribeca-based gallery The Untitled Space is currently accepting artist submissions for its forthcoming group exhibition, “Angry Women”, running 1/17/17-1/22/17 featuring the work of 20 up and coming female artists in the community. The opening reception will mark the 44th anniversary of Roe v Wade, and the show will work in partnership with the ERA coalition, to benefit their goal of passing and ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment into the United States Constitution. For those interested in submitting their work for consideration, please visit untitled-space.com/ or email email@example.com.
Curator and gallery owner, Indira Cesarine’s statement regarding the show speaks to our greater social imperative to protect the rights of women in the face of the impending Trump presidency:
“Right now it is important time for women to demonstrate solidarity in face of the threats upon us in regards to women’s rights. The 2016 presidential election has brought to the surface extremes of sexism, racism and discrimination. Many women are deeply disturbed not only by the negative stereotyping and sexist attitudes towards women that have surfaced but also the threats to roll back women’s rights. The exhibit gives female artists a means to express themselves in regards to the social and political climate in America, and empower others with their visual imagery. We are proud to partner with the ERA Coalition and help raise money for their Fund for Women’s Equality. Right now more than ever women need to unify and work together to ensure that our rights, which were fought for with blood and tears for many decades, are not only assured, but continue to progress.”
More about the ERA and their Fund For Women’s Equality:
The Fund for Women’s Equality is a charitable organization working to raise awareness on gaps in the laws that leave women without legal recourse from sex discrimination, and developing educational resources on the need for a constitutional provision to protect and promote equal rights for women. Founded by Jessica Neuwirth, author of “Equal Means Equal”; the ERA Coalition board also includes Gloria Steinem,Teresa Younger and many other prominent women’s rights activists.
