RISE: Empower, Change and Action! seeks to bring artists into dialogue and to bring forth what is important to self, community, our nation and the world at large through art that reflects and addresses complex socio-cultural issues and focuses on a vision for a more positive, empowering future, particularly for self-identified women and girls as well as their families. It is underpinned by the feminist principle that believes in political, economic and social equality for all.

FROM THE ACCEPTED ARTISTS IN THIS EXHIBITION, ONE ARTIST WILL BE CHOSEN by Suzanne Whitney-Smedt, owner of Whitney Modern, TO HAVE A TWO-WEEK SHOW at Whitney Modern in the summer of 2019. All selections for RISE will be made by the exhibition curators.

In addition, three SPECIAL AWARD JURORS will view the works and choose one piece each to receive acknowledgement, and prominent display in the catalog, website and social media sites of Whitney Modern and Gutfreund Cornett Art.
