Absurdity: In Dada We Trust

Woman Made Gallery (WMG) seeks entries for the Absurdity: In Dada We Trust exhibition, juried by WMG co-founders, Kelly P Hensen and Beate Minkovski and on display from July 22 to August 19, 2023.

Absurdity, In Dada We Trust, is inspired by a collaboration between The Art Center Highland Park, Chicago Women's Caucus for Art, and Stola Contemporary Art and in honor of artist Helene Romer Smith who died in March 2022.

When the world goes mad, the arts go Dada.

In the US and across the globe, bullies have been applauded and emboldened to share self-serving rhetoric of nationalism and to act out sanctioned racism.

Woman Life Freedom

Woman Made Gallery (WMG) seeks entries for the Woman Life Freedom exhibition, juried by Shahrbanoo Hamzeh and on display from May 6 to June 3, 2023.

Woman Life Freedom is a slogan that the women of Iran are chanting on the streets in​ an unfair war with the gender apartheid regime to gain their basic human rights and bodily​ autonomy back. Beginning on September 16th, 2022, with Mahsa Amini’s unjust death, Iranian​ people have been shedding blood, sweat, and tears while protesting in the streets for freedom.​ ​We can play our part for freedom through art. I believe artists are able to take up the fight for​ women’s rights and become the voice of Iranian women.
