Seen and Heard: An Active Commemoration of Women’s Suffrage

Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the passage of women’s suffrage in New York State in 1917, Seen and Heard explores the state’s history of activism and use of the arts as a catalyst for social change. Inspired by Barbara Kruger’s “Who Speaks, Who is Silent?”, a monumental work in the Everson’s permanent collection that addresses the implication of silence and representation for women, this exhibition brings together newly commissioned work from artists working in photography, printmaking, and social practice, as well as several works from the Museum’s collection. Accompanied by a series of public programs, Seen and Heard explores the language and tactics of protest through the arts.

Angela Fraleigh, Carried by Voices, 2014, oil and 23kt gold leaf and alkyd on canvas.

On view through December 31, 2016
Angela Fraleigh, based in New York City and Allentown, co-opts the techniques, media, and styles of the European Old Masters to create monumental paintings of female figures that explore social constructs of gender, power, and identity. Combining abstraction and realism, her visually seductive and complicated paintings reflect on art history, literature, and popular culture. For the Everson, Fraleigh presents new paintings inspired by works in the Everson’s collection, women of the Arts and Crafts movement and important female figures in the history of Central New York.
