A Woman in Her Place

March 2016

A Woman in Her Place  is a project to highlight the place of women in society. Created around the theme of women’s identity and place, female artists from the United States and Europe were asked to create an art work using a traditional slip (undergarment) as a unifying symbol for woman. In this instance place can include a physical place, rank, or cultural status, interpreted by each artist differently.

“A slip is something that no one sees you wearing but that changes the appearance of what everyone sees”--Rebecca Solnit

Each artist was given a slip or they purchase their own. Participation in the exhibition requires artists to return an artifact and/or documentation of the piece made with the slip expressing their representation of woman/female identity. Our intention is to create an exhibition that will feature diverse forms of art-making, media and content.

Artists: Monika Bohus, Rachel Epp Buller, Erin Vigneau Dimick, Emily Dunlap, Nancy Exarhu, Valerie Haring, Kathleen Hayes, Sandra Luckett, Tara Morton, Daria Souvorova , Libby Rowe, Amanda Pfister, Manda Remmen, Mary Werner, Kristine Wilson, Stephanie Spindler, Deborah Alma Wheeler
