“WOMEN AND ANGER: Resistance, Power and Inspiration”

“Women have traditionally been discouraged from expressing anger for fear of being perceived as unladylike or worse — as dangerous or destabilizing. This exhibit demonstrates that anger can be used as a positive outlet.”

“Today, many women are angry,” says Judy Langston, exhibit curator. “Recent pushbacks in hard fought political and legal gains made by women, and ongoing assaults on the health and safety of women and other marginalized groups, as well as on the environment, would suggest that the time is right for some well-placed, righteous indignation. Most striking was the deeply felt anger and sadness women expressed about their own conditions. This is a great opportunity for the community to examine the talents and vulnerabilities of exceptional artists.”

Feeling proud to be part of this new exhibition: “Women and Anger: Resistance, Power and Inspiration” and to be exhibiting for the third time at Koehnline Museum of Chicago, Illinois, from Sep.28 until Oct. 20th.
