What is WOMANISH?
WOMANISH is a movement that pushes the boundaries of socio-political norms by provoking curiosity through stimulating, creative experiences that leave you challenging your perspective of womanhood.
What’s up with the “x” in the word “womxn”?
The word “womxn” (spelled with an “x”) represents all forms of women and non-binary people—women who don’t necessarily conform to a stereotypical, gendered female.
What can visitors expect from the WOMANISH Exhibit in 2020?
Step into a 5 story experience in the heart of downtown Chicago. Your journey will start by walking though a 1950's diner and send you off into a world that explores perspective in a creative way. Color your way through our Childish room, follow paper planes to a holographic dimension in our Vanish room, dance your heart away in our Partyish room, and much more!!
On top of the beautiful art installations, we will have some amazing programming happening in space as well!! It will be a unique, 60-day experience for Chicago featuring artists who use their art to support womxn. Guests can expect a Covid-19 safe, thought provoking, fun space to explore.
How does one join the movement and participate?
Everyone can participate by engaging with us on social, becoming a contributor through this platform and coming to our WOMANISH Exhibit launching August 3d!! Most importantly, one can participate by joining these important conversations and celebrating womxn! #WeAreWomanish
Can men be a part of the movement?
Of course! WOMANISH is for everyone to come have fun! We love it when men show up to have fun and celebrate womxn. Everyone has thoughts about what womxn’s perspectives are. We all come from womxn and have close relationships with womxn—mothers, daughters, adopted families, sisters, friends. Men will connect with these perspectives too because of the womxn in their lives, The goal (for everyone) is to gain an understanding of other peoples’ perspectives and celebrate one another.
