March 8 by 8 Women, 2020. In an era of constant threats to multicultural values and women’s rights, this exhibition aimed to create a space for sororidad, sisterhood and mutual support, for creative practices and values. Through art, these 8 artists responded to personal experiences and those of their communities in an intersectional approach to feminism that challenged viewers both critically and creatively. With works that ranged from overtly political to subtly poetic, they addressed issues of identity as well as larger global and social issues such as exile, sexism, and women’s rights. Curated by Elisa Ortega Montilla
