Explore the Women’s Suffrage Mobile Garment Rack (WSMGR)

Sunday, October 13, 2019 at 11 a.m.–1 p.m.

Join artist and social activist Amanda Curreri as she guides visitors in their engagement with the Women’s Suffrage Mobile Garment Rack (WSMGR). Occupying different gallery spaces within the museum each week, this portable garment rack serves as a platform for visitors to encounter the themes of the exhibition Women Breaking Boundaries.

Wearable garments and thematic materials incite inquiry and encourage critical exchange while exploring ideas of identity construction, empowerment through fashion, performance, gender parity, and inclusion in the arts. The WSMGR is a participatory project and visitors are encouraged to interact.

 

About Women Breaking Boundaries: this exhibition presents artworks from across the museum’s permanent collection, most of which were created by self-identified female artists from the seventeenth century to today. By pairing historic and contemporary works of art in many mediums, the exhibition explores how these artists challenged the norm in an art world historically dominated by men. Learn more
