Exhibit Exploring Challenges Faced by Women in Politics and Society
In September 2020, the Tang Teaching Museum at Skidmore College opened an exhibit called Never Done: 100 Years of Women in Politics and Beyond to create a dialogue on women’s rights and women in politics over the last 100 years. The exhibit was organized by the museum’s assistant director for curatorial affairs, and a marketing and business professor at Skidmore. Together, they curated the works of 100 different women and nonbinary artists of different races, ethnic backgrounds, and identities to represent the 100 years. With a diverse group of women and nonbinary artists working in photography, painting, printmaking, collage, textile, and sculpture, Never Done manifests a multiplicity of women’s experiences, views, and modes of expression. The Never Done exhibit is available for virtual tours on the Tang Teaching Museum’s website. All speakers and dialogue with artists are broadcast on the site.
