Women’s History Month

Women’s History Month acknowledges the achievements and contributions of women integral to our society. Today, on International Women’s Day, we imagine an inclusive world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination while celebrating the diversity of womanhood and elevating the visibility of creative women everywhere.

At ExhibitsUSA, we celebrate the achievements of women in a variety of our traveling exhibitions:

The latest addition to our roster is Politics of the Kitchen, an exhibition of sixteen artists and collaborators, fifteen of which are women, working with a variety of photographic media to stir up new considerations that define the kitchen as something more than a place where food is cooked: the kitchen is an ideological space.

Courting Style shares how the historical evolution of women’s tennis fashion reflect concurrent social and cultural contexts. In A Colorful Dreamcontemporary fine art photographer Adrien Broom alludes to themes of childhood fantasy, using young women as protagonists.

Olympic sprint canoeist Cathy Marino pictured rowing during a practice race for the 1984 Olympic games.                                   

We uplift women artists leading imperative conversations about climate change, societal issues, and human stories that define us. Walking in Antarctica features the photography and 3D sculptural work of Helen Glazer to explore the intersections between the natural world and artistic processes. In The Fourth Grade Project, artist Judy Gelles interviewed and photographed more than 300 fourth-grade students from a wide range of economic and cultural backgrounds to assert that every person’s story matters.

How We Rebuild features award-winning post-war photography by grant winners and finalists from The Aftermath Project, a non-profit organization committed to telling the other half of war stories, after the conflicts have ended. The Aftermath Project founder, Sara Terry, is one of eleven women photographers featured in this exhibition.

Happy International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month!
