EXHIBITION OPPORTUNITIES IN THE BAY AREA AND BEYOND
What This project is timed to run concurrent with the Feminist Art Coalition, a national project by U.S. art institutions to mark the Centennial of the 19th Amendment that gave women the right to vote. There will be many exhibitions and programs this year. Many will address its failure to protect women of color and spotlight enduring inequities across the nation. Locally, MOCA, the Hammer, ICA and others are participating.

What “Fragments” brings to mind broken pieces, something incomplete, a small part of something larger or remains when something has been lost or destroyed. We are seeking works ranging from abstract to representational, fantasy to realism, and portraiture to architecture and landscape. Help us shatter traditional boundaries by your imaginative interpretation of “fragments.”
