By investigating the relationship between women and money through a contemporary lens, Women and Money posits questions and initiates visual and verbal dialogue regarding economics, of which money is a by-product, a construct, and a human creation. Money has evolved from an “exchange of value” to a purpose of its own that has, in some instances, created its own scarcity. Women have experienced this scarcity and the exhibition provides an opportunity to bring artistic voices to the discussion. Women and Money expands beyond the limits of the gallery space into the community by connecting artists, community organizations, private entities, and audiences in exploring a local and global problem. The exhibition promotes the use of art for social change, examines women’s place in the precarious state of the world’s economic and financial situation, and scrutinizes, investigates and discusses infrastructures that perpetuate gender and economic inequality.
