She Inspires- Opening Tuesday at The Untitled Space

Once again, The Untitled Space in Tribeca is using its art world cache to address issues that have become more prevalent in the current administration. As women around the country (and the world) have begun banding together to speak up for fundamental rights that have been challenged, curator Indira Cesarine has brought together 60 contemporary artists with works honoring inspirational women. The exhibition, along with its programming, not only fosters dialogue, but also fiscally supports the non profit She Should Run. The massive group show opens tomorrow May 2nd from 6-9pm at 45 Lispenard Street.

SHE INSPIRES Exhibit Artwork, The Untitled Space Gallery, New York – May 2017

The exhibit will take place from May 2- May 20, 2017, with several events to take place including an opening reception on May 2nd, a special performance by renowned dancer Katherine Crockett in collaboration with artist Laura Wehl on May 9th as well as an artist talk on May 16th.

SHE INSPIRES is presented in support of non-profit She Should Run. 10% of exhibition proceeds will benefit the non-partisan 501(c)3 organization expanding the talent pool of future elected female leaders. She Should Run started as a project in 2008 and has evolved to become a movement working to create a culture that inspires women and girls to aspire towards public leadership. She Should Run believes that women of all backgrounds should have an equal shot at elected leadership and that The United States will benefit from having a government with varied perspectives and experiences.

“We are honored to support non-profit She Should Run with this exhibit focused on inspirational women. Right now more than ever, it is time for women to take a step forward and focus on leadership in their communities and beyond. The SHE INSPIRES exhibit aims to highlight, through the work of male and female contemporary artists, women throughout history who have made a positive impact. It was not until 1963 that the first college course on women’s history was introduced in the United States. As feminism continues to gain traction, we are finally shifting our focus to include the accomplishments of many remarkable women who have influenced our culture. The SHE INSPIRES exhibit honors contemporary and historical women, It celebrates them and tells their stories, which should be rightfully included as not just “women’s history” but our history.”  – Curator / gallery owner Indira Cesarine
