ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

Under capitalism, we are asked to make every hour of every day productive -- through work, through consuming, through buying, through wanting more.  But after a year of isolation, confinement, of racial justice uprising, of trauma from police violence, of illness, what can a new reality look like if we continue to live slowly? If we continue to pause, process what we have collectively gone through, and move at the speed of humanity rather than the speed of production?

This exhibition features the work of 42 women and non-binary artists exploring a Slow Living lifestyle and the practice of rest as a feminist act.

Call for Art

ON FOOD + FEMINISM -- SUBMIT TODAY!

 

Woman Made Gallery seeks submissions for our January- February 2022 group exhibition juried by Rosalyn D’Mello (international art critic, feminist writer, columnist, and recent evaluator for the Andy Warhol Foundation Art Writers Grant). 

Woman Made Gallery seeks artwork exploring food through an intersectional feminist lens across mediums. It asks artists to subvert socially conditioned, gendered conceptions of a kitchen, an ingredient, a worm, or even a plate.
 

The juror is particularly, though not exclusively, interested in investigating the following conceptual questions for “Word of Mouth”:

  • If we are what we eat what nourishes our collective soul? 
  • How does your garden grow? How does the squirmy earthworm embody hope? 
  • How to advance queer table fellowship? 
  • What makes a particular orifice a mouth? 
  • How do we salvage leftover joys? 
  • How do you undo a pomegranate without the application of a knife? Can you cut a pineapple underwater? 
  • How does the gut relate to emotion? How do you ferment old wine?

MEMBER SPOTLIGHT

We are delighted to feature Elizabeth Busey as a member of WMG. In her artist statement, Elizabeth shares "From a distance, my monoprint collages can look like quilts or mosaics. Colorful elements are carefully cut and placed into matrices reminiscent of mathematical or scientific principles. When considered up-close, vintage maps, personal cyanotypes and colorful monotypes keep the viewer’s eye moving from element to element. Drawing from travel, topography and plant forms, my monoprint collages evoke feelings of memory, longing and connection." To view Elizabeth's full statement and see more work, visit womanmade.org/members.

COMMUNITY NEWS

FROM OUR FRIENDS AT WCA

DEADLINE: September 30, 2021
JUROR: Dr. Maura Reilly
EXHIBITION DATES: January 21st to February 25th, 2022

This National WCA exhibition in the 50th Anniversary is seeking artistic works that address this moment of 2022. Artists are encouraged to interpret the theme broadly, considering the multiplicities of how we arrived here and what we envision moving forward. We encourage art that explores the ways that our identities and expressions intersect with such factors as environment, culture, time, and location. Artwork can be in any approach and form, including the historic precedents set by political activism, personal transformation and social engagement.

SUPPORT WOMAN MADE

Woman Made Gallery began in 1992 as the project of two art students, Kelly Hensen and Beate Minkovski, who visioned a dedicated space for women artists. Today, we are building Chicago’s strongest nonprofit center for women and non-binary artists through exhibitions, membership, and community dialogue programs. 
 

Join us in support of this mission by purchasing tickets or becoming a sponsor of our fall fundraising event. It will be a evening to remember as you discover new artists, connect with friends old and new, and celebrate the successes and future plans of Woman Made Gallery.
