The Women’s Caucus for Art hosted by AIR Gallery with juror Catherine Morris, Curator, Elizabeth Sackler Center announces a Call for Art for Sept 2015. There is a momentum growing with a surge of interest about the place of women in the art market and art world at large. With a record number of discussions about women in the arts through social media channels, what still needs to be said about feminism and what is relevant to be addressed to influence cultural attitudes and transform stereotypes? WCA seeks art from cross-generational, self-identified women artists that address feminism with a contemporary spin through works that present a message about the women’s experience to incite the viewer to question the social and political landscape and the need for gender equality – where feminism has been and where it is going. The theme may be broadly interpreted from a political, personal or formal context through a variety of media.
