"And They Walked Hand In Hand, Side By Side"

Always Taking Advantage of the Opportunities.jpg

Merriam Webster’s word of the year in 2017 was “feminism,” indicating it was the top online search for a vast cross-section of society seeking its meaning. In celebration of Women’s History Month, the exhibition And They Walked Hand in Hand, Side by Side aims to further define and distill the term “feminism.” 

What are the implications of this newfound interest and awareness of what feminism is today, and is it an opportunity to reimagine what it means to be a feminist? 

This exhibition endeavors to explore and construct new knowledge as it relates to femininity, beauty, cultural identity and our understanding of modern feminism. Furthermore it looks to create a space to engage in dynamic conversation around the issues of feminism so that we grow to collectively acknowledge our strength in numbers when we decisively aim to walk hand in hand, side-by-side.
