Please join ArtTable’s Florida chapter for a Virtual tour of the exhibition “House to House: Women, Politics, and Place” with Amy Galpin, PhD, Chief Curator at the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum at FIU in Miami, FL. The tour is free for members and $10 for guests.
This fall, U.S. citizens will go to the polls to cast their vote in the 2020 presidential election. Campaign advertisements saturate TV and radio while social media feeds explode with political declarations. As local and national elections are decided in November, the U.S. also marks the 100-year anniversary of women gaining the right to vote. As these two events coalesce, the Frost Art Museum presents House to House: Women, Politics, and Place. The multimedia works in this exhibition explore the changing roles of women, metaphorically represented by the house as domestic space and the most public of houses, the U.S House of Representatives, where there are 100 women serving as Representatives. In the 20th century, women became visible outside the home, becoming active participants in society and demanding overdue equal representation, social justice, as well as empowerment.
