  • Collective Impact: Females Joining Forces

    • 20 February 2020

    The impulse to collaborate with people similar to yourself is not new, but it can be powerful. There’s a need, a desire, to do something bigger than yourself. When you find others to help you make larger, bolder statements, and rally around a common, shared goal – the experience can be transformative for everyone.

    Collective Impact: Females Joining Forces, curated by Mallory Feltz, is a group show of Cincinnati female artist collectives that focuses on the combined power of women and their collaborative creativity. Inspired by pivotal female artist collectives from the 1970s onward (Where We At (WWA) Black Women Artists, Inc., Guerrilla Girls, Sister Serpents, etc) that were fueled by the Second-Wave Feminist Movement in the 1960s (and subsequent movements), this exhibition aims to continue the discussion of female empowerment in art and the importance of the collective voice. By exhibiting artworks from female artist collectives working in Cincinnati, including Bombshells of Cincinnati, Art Hags, Art for Artists, Maidens of the Cosmic Body Running, LOOK! Collaborative, and PhotograpHERS we are highlighting the different ways in which women collaborate and inspire important discussions in our region, but also how they comment on the contemporary female experience. Historical signage on pivotal national female artist collectives past and present will link Cincinnati to the larger national art historical movement of females joining forces to make their voices heard.

    This exhibition was originally developed in partnership with ArtsWave’s POWER OF HER Initiative.
