YES! The Movement.
OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTS For International Womxn's Day.
YES! The Movemnent.
Exhibition runs March 5 - 11, 2020
As a female owned gallery, International Womxn's Day, at The Freedom Factory is one of our most prized exhibitions. We have put much thought into our group show this year and gone back and forth about which direction to approach our message. After some consideration and our concept continuing to evolve; despite putting out a previous open call, "Shit Barbie Wouldn't Say", we are now revising our open call to reflect our vision for a movement that creates change and a future in which society truly respects and celebrates womxn's rights to own their sexuality.
We introduce YES. The Movement!
Womxn have fought hard to create the "No means No" and "Me Too" awareness campaigns. We now move to empower womxn further by having open discussions about womxn wanting to say "Yes" to their own sexuality without fearing perpetual slut shaming. We want to address the reality that womxn, who have been conditioned for centurie, to believe that nice womxn are agreeable , can find saying "No" as difficult as saying "Yes". We wish to help to eradicate the gray areas allowing both men and womxn to feel confident and educated with consent issues.
Artists, we invite you to share your visions of female empowerment, embracing your rights to say "yes", say "no" or "I'm not sure yet" without shame or fear.
We invite you to include Yes in your toolbox and share your vision.
