Women’s Equality Day marks the passage of the 19th Amendment which granted many women the right to vote. Though this date honors a momentous occasion in United States history, it still took nearly five more decades for all women to have the right to vote. The changes suffragettes inspired were due, in part, to their brave protests—protests many called riots. Those “riots” were truly a revolution, one that continues today. In honor of all those women who continue to protest on behalf of women’s rights and against inequality, Arnold’s Good Gallery introduces More Than a Riot, a temporary art exhibition in Downtown Crossing.
More Than a Riot showcases the work of female and female-identifying artists across all media who are creating art in conversation with the current cultural climate, specifically issues of inequality and feminism. The exhibition highlights contemporary voices confronting bias, injustice, and hate who, through their work, refuse to be silenced. While we have a long way to go in the United States, the work of these artists proves it’s always been more than a riot, it’s a revolution.
More Than a Riot features work from Christina Balch, Thy Doan, Ariel Feiberg, Chanel Thervil, Joanna Tam, Holland Dieringer, Kim Druker Stockwell, Hope Hellberg, Nicole Duennebier, Caitlin Duennebier, Kit Collins, Secret Holiday and more...
