516 ARTS, in partnership with the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian, presents “Feminisms,” an exhibition featuring artists of various cultures whose creative possibilities use the theme of feminism in its most expansive meaning. The artists approach their process and practice in a variety of mediums including video, performance, installation, and two- and three-dimensional works, which are all connected to current cultural, political, historical, and semiotic climates.
“Feminisms” was developed in conjunction with a new initiative spearheaded by the Feminist Art Coalition, a national effort seeking to inspire a broad variety of exhibitions and programs across the country to centralize feminist perspectives and concerns in the cultural consciousness leading into and the year following the 2020 election. This endeavor takes feminist thought and practice as its point of departure and considers art as a catalyst for civic engagement.
