The themed exhibition: Women Pulling at The Threads of Social Discourse, revolving around women and their social voices, was first launched last year exploring how women artists utilizing textiles as their medium subvert the social expectation of crafting, and instead take this soft medium and lambast it with political and social awareness. More and more, we see women taking to the streets, wether mourning or screaming for a government to account for their lost children, or as they did, one hundred years ago to insist on social and political equality to be able to cast their own vote. The marriage of the female artist to the textile medium, both, outwardly and socially expected to be weak – are in fact, in the hands of these artists – affirms that strength lies in durability, pliability and resolve. For this year’s edition of the exhibition, we are pleased to announce that it will also launch the newly formed FAMA, a fiber artist organization based in Miami, Florida. FAMA, formed this year, and during the pandemic, artists Aurora Molina, Evelyn Politzer, and Alina Rodriguez united a group of creatives to organize and present their first exhibition honoring the 2020 Women’s Vote Centennial and create awareness about our duty to vote. We are assembling using mixed media and the fiber arts to ignite positive social change. The exhibited works will be only flags, as the flag or banner is used as a metaphor or symbol of solidarity with the women of the suffrage movement in this exhibition.
