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.

An Open Call for an Old School, LGBTQIA-friendly, Radical Feminist Art Exhibition

This exhibition will be a hybrid of both virtual and onsite components. An open call to all who identify as radical feminists for two-dimensional and three-dimensional art works, and short video art pieces serving as visual narratives based on the mantra that the personal is political. What embodies radicalism on an artistic level, is it the artist’s engagement with protest, activism, cultural organizing? Is it the materials used or the content the artist takes up? Show us the manifestations of the work that fueled your survival through the past 4 years and preserved your hope for a brighter future!
