In conjunction with the Center for Fine Art Photography and the Lincoln Center Gallery, the Clara Hatton Gallery presents:
THE RIGHT TO HERSELF
October 20-December 19, 2020
Co-curated by Lauren Cross, Ph.D, MFA and Hamidah Glasgow, MA, Executive Director and Curator, The Center for Fine Art Photography.
The Right To Herself exhibition examines the complexities of the 100th anniversary of the passing of the 19th amendment.
Though the law legally prohibited the denial of the right to vote based on sex, many women of diverse backgrounds in the U.S. were unable to exercise that right. In this way, The Right to Herself exhibition and related programs will provide a lens to view works by women artists who self-identify as indigenous, women of color, and/or embody diverse racial, ethnic, and economic identities to share their various perspectives on the intersections of gender equity, and the influence of women of color on the suffrage and equal rights movement both in contemporary society and in history.
The exhibition will reflect on the vote as a promise for agency and voice within society, and its relationship to diverse communities. In featuring these themes, the show will recall, reclaim, and reimagine the power of women from different racial, ethnic, and class-based histories in front of the lens and rectify their lacking presence within photography and art history.
The exhibition is split between two locations:
* October 20 – November 28, 2020, at the Lincoln Center Gallery, 417 W Magnolia St., Fort Collins, CO
* October 20 – December 12 at the Clara Hatton Gallery, 601 Pitkin St., Visual Arts Building, at Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO
Exhibitions will also be available virtually through the Center for Fine Art Photography’s website c4fap.org. Additionally, the exhibition(s) will feature an accompanying billboard, catalog, virtual talks and events that will be posted on the website.
Featured Artists: Tya Anthony, Lindsey Beal, Christa Blackwood, Marcella Ernest, Adama Delphine Fawundu, Angela Faz, Karen Ann Hoffman, Ann ‘Sole Sister’ Johnson, Letitia Huckaby, Gabi Magaly, 2 Suchitra Mattai, Pallavi Govindnathan, Renluka Maharaj, Jennifer McClure, Michelle Rogers Pritzl, Pete Sands, Rachelle Mozman Solano, Susan Sponsler-Carstarphen, and Chanell Stone.
