Isabella Huffington’s collage-based art challenges the dialogue around women in today’s political climate. The exhibition asks viewers to assess the gains women have made in global politics in recent elections and the rhetoric used to achieve gender parity.
Each collage featured in the exhibition explores a different aspect of women’s participation in U.S. government, both historically and in Huffington’s view of the future. The exhibition presents both questions of concern and words of triumph for women’s equal representation and respect in the political arena. Included in the show’s pieces is an ode to powerful women in American history, the eyes of women who have served in the House of Representatives, words that have been used against female politicians, and those that reclaim power.
