March 2020: We Wait.

March 6, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

6:00 pm

The Harrison Center and Indiana Humanities join forces this month to present “We Wait.,” new work by Gigi Salij, in the Harrison Gallery.

Part of a year-long commemoration of the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, this show features screenprint portraits of women who are waiting—waiting in line to vote, literally, but also waiting to take their rightful, equal place in society.  “The patience of women is such an important subtext of the suffrage movement,” Salij explains.  “Women waited well over a hundred years for their right to vote to be recognized, but one hundred years later women are still waiting—for pay equity, for equal representation in legislatures and boardrooms, for the end of patriarchal culture.”  The show opens Friday, March 6, with an artist reception from 6:00 to 10:00pm.

With support from: Indiana Humanities, the Arts Council of Indianapolis, the Indiana Arts Commission, Christel DeHaan Family Foundation, Allen Whitehill Clowes Charitable Foundation, the Indianapolis Foundation, and Sun King Brewery.
