STAND UP is an all Women* group exhibition curated by a group of powerful female and gender non-conforming artists, educators, and curators living and working in Boston, MA. This presentation confronts our current socio-political time, injustices, and misrepresentation of women artists in contemporary art practices and the art market. The exhibition scrutinizes themes of feminism, queerness, identity, gender, race, social politics and justice. This presentation focuses on showing the work of marginalized artists of different class, race, gender identity, religion, cultural ethics, and immigration status.

*Women: We welcome anyone who identifies as cisgender, genderqueer, trans women, femmes, & non-binary people of all cultures and experience.
