Featuring artworks by Kate Horvat, the installation explores the activism of women dedicated to the rights of women.  Horvat considers the recent 100-year anniversary of the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment and the history of the Women’s Rights Movement more broadly. As a result of 72 years of national activism promoting women’s suffrage, the Nineteenth Amendment’s ratification on August 18, 1920, legally guaranteed American women the right to vote. Yet, due to systematic oppression, the fight for equal rights continues on in the interconnected Civil Rights Movement and the Feminist Movement.

The exhibition addresses the possibility of disorientation in the retelling of lived histories. What gets overwritten in our memories? In the histories and stories told?  The activists represented in text and image questioned their own realities. They dedicated, or, continue to dedicate, their lives to their collective belief in the possibility of change.
