Women Do It! Postcard Exhibition

January 23, 2016 - February 16, 2016

Women Do It!, is the mail art exhibition of WCA’s International Caucus and its UN Program. Individual artists, mail artists, students, children, activists and concerned individuals of all genders and ages as well as classrooms and organizations were invited to create altered or hand-made postcards for the traveling Women Do It! postcard show. The exhibition is hosted in partnership by the Target Gallery and the Women’s Caucus for Art as an extension of Trending: Contemporary Art Now! which is part of WCA’s 2016 national conference in Washington, D.C. The exhibition is located in Site 2 on the second floor of the Torpedo Factory Art Center.

”Women Do It!” was inspired by and highlights the work of  UN Women’s HeForShe campaign, its Beijing+20 program and  in their efforts toward advancing women’s rights and gender equality in society, economics and politics.

The Women’s Caucus for Art (WCA), was founded in 1972, as an arts & activism non-profit that is still led by volunteer members. Its International Caucus is charged with maintaining WCA’s NGO (non-governmental organization) status with the United Nations and creating opportunities and collaborations with the United Nations and other international entities.

Women Do It! Exhibition Directors:  Priscilla Otani (Past President of WCA, Current Treasurer of WCA, Past WCA International Committee Chair, Partner at Arc Project Gallery in San Francisco),  Sherri Cornett (Chair of WCA’s International Caucus, Director of the Caucus’ Half the Sky: Intersections in Social Practice Art project in Shenyang, China, Co-Director of Women + Body, the Caucus’ collaborative exhibition in South Korea)
