House to House: Women, Politics and Place
at the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum
“This is what we mean by democracy: that everyone has a voice, that no one gets away with things just because of their wealth, power, race, or gender.”—Rebecca Solnit, Men Explain Things to Me
This fall, U.S. citizens will go to the polls to cast their vote in the 2020 presidential election. Campaign advertisements saturate TV and radio while social media feeds explode with political declarations. As local and national elections are decided in November, the U.S. also marks the 100-year anniversary of women gaining the right to vote. As these two events coalesce, the Frost Art Museum presents House to House: Women, Politics, and Place. The multimedia works in this exhibition explore the changing roles of women, metaphorically represented by the house as domestic space and the most public of houses, the U.S House of Representatives, where there are 100 women serving as Representatives. In the 20th century, women became visible outside the home, becoming active participants in society and demanding overdue equal representation, social justice, as well as empowerment.
The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum's mission is to provide transformative experiences through art; collect, exhibit, and interpret art across cultures; and advance FIU’s stature as a top tier research university.
