Prospectus

The Women’s Studies Collective (WSC) at The University of West Florida invites regional artists to submit work to our 2016 exhibition Feminist Iconography III.We are asking that artists submit pieces for consideration that adhere to the theme of feminist iconography. This theme encompasses works that are expressive of women’s experiences, that offer perspectives of feminism and the feminist movements, and that challenge social and political landscapes.

These pieces may adopt a variety of traditional and non-traditional genres (abstract, processual, representational, realist etc.) and media including painting, printmaking, drawing, fabric, sculpture, video, photography, etc. Artists are encouraged to experiment with form and style as they cultivate their own feminist-minded works. All exhibited artists and artwork will be featured on the WSC’s social media platforms.
