To Future Women launched in Washington, DC on the one year anniversary of the 2017 Women’s March, a few months after the #MeToo movement exploded. In six months, To Future Women intervened in The Phillips Collection, the Hirshhorn and the Smithsonian Arts & Industries Building. To move beyond the city’s center, it travelled to Anacostia Art Center. Finally, the artist reinterpreted the project into an artistic sacred space at IA&A at Hillyer gallery.
To Future Women was presented at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in the Lerner Room gallery because of its large-scale windows overlooking the National Archives and the National Mall. To Future Women intervened in the entire system of the Hirshhorn’s public programs with Museum Tours focused on women artists, feminist Storytime for children, Artist Talks and a participatory Circle Discussion. Entitled ‘Archives & Lullabies’, this discussion explored women-driven systems of knowledge transmission as a method of revealing and disrupting hierarchies within the Smithsonian’s collecting and archiving processes.
