Picturing Power & Potential:
A Project of Economica
Launching June 15, 2010
The International Museum of Women and the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery's Art at City Hall program are thrilled to announce that Picturing Power & Potential: A Project of Economica will launch on June 15, 2010 online at IMOW.org and in a physical exhibition at San Francisco City Hall.
Picturing Power & Potential is the latest special project of Economica: Women and the Global Economy, and will feature photographs of women around the world exercising their power as change-agents in the global economy. We received hundreds of images from artists around the world, and after a rigorous selection process, the jury chose 55 works from 20 global photographers to be displayed at IMOW.org and in a physical exhibition at San Francisco City Hall.
SFAC Gallery Director Meg Shiffler says, "This partnership has yielded one of the most diverse and stunning photo exhibitions we've ever created for City Hall. The artists have invested in their various subject matters and emerged with images that both inspire and take your breath away."
"These photographs speak to the breadth of experience women have as participants in the global economy," notes IMOW Executive Director Clare Winterton. "The exhibition shows that women are making incredible strides as powerful, economic change-agents, but that there are still significant challenges to be faced and more potential for growth than ever before."Artists: Anne Hamersky (USA), Ariko Inaoka (Japan), Alex Kamweru (Kenya), Brenda Paik Sunoo (USA), Dana Whitaker (USA), Elizabeth Colton (USA), Isabela Senatore (Brazil), Jennifer Samuel (USA), Joanna Lipper (USA), Margaret Silverman (USA), Mark Tuschman (USA), Mathilde Jansen (The Netherlands), Mehran Afshar Naderi (Iran), Michelle McCarron (USA), Miranda Mimi Kuo-Deemer (China), Pattabi Raman (India), Rocio Russo (USA), Samyukta Lakshmi (India), Sanaz Mazinani (Canada), and Selvaprakash Lakshmanan (India).
