WE, The Women's Caucus exhibition stands to celebrate women's caucus members and our diversity during this incredibly insane, historical year. The photographic works are responsive pieces that illuminate, question, and challenge societal notions through our individual expression, discussing the relationship of power and gender, and the societal intersections.


WE, The Women's Caucus exhibition is the result of an international call-to-artists of Women, Trans, and GNC People investigating and considering the intersection of cultural, social, political, economic, spiritual, sexual, non/gender-based, and environmental forces. 2020 is the hundred year anniversary of the 19th Amendment, yet social injustice and in-equality continue to plague the United States, a pandemic has wreaked havoc on the world, and it is an incredibly big election year. WE, the Women's Caucus exhibition couldn't have come to light at a better time.

WE, The Women's Caucus is a juried exhibition of photographers that are members of the Women's Caucus within the Society for Photographic Education created by women's caucus member Jordanne Renner through two awesome grants she received through FotoFocus and the Greater Columbus Arts Council. This exhibition was originally a participating venue in the FotoFocus 2020 Light & Biennial, but since the shift everything has made because of Covid-19 this simple call-to-artists and members of SPE's Women's Caucus has become so much more.

If you are a business or organization with Women, Trans, and/or GNC People as your leadership, or you are lifting up these communities WE would like to hear from you-- send an email to WEtheWomensCaucusExhibition@gmail.com
