The Art Center is pleased to announce the exhibition of The Face of Feminism Now: Conversations with Feminists, a portrait photography series examining the experiences of local feminists. The exhibition will include photographs of feminists from the Seacoast area taken throughout the year following the Women’s March of 2017, along with the words of the participants. The show will run through March 30th and is timed to coincide with National Women’s History Month. At the Reception on March 24th, the artist will present a slideshow/talk about the making of the series and offer some observations about the final project, along with additional images and quotes from the participants.
Moved by the extraordinary events of January 21, 2017 – the date of the global Women’s March – and her own experience at the march in Washington, DC., Phoenix Mayet embarked on a year-long project to begin a conversation with other Seacoast area feminists about the future of the movement. Mayet presented each participant with a survey of four basic questions about their experiences as feminists and then sat down with each for an interview and photo shoot. The resulting images along with quotes from the participants themselves offer viewers a glimpse into the state of local feminism today and invite them to join in the dialogue about the future of the feminist movement.
