Strength & Beauty : The Women’s Show

Curator’s Statement:

Define women. Define beautiful. Define strength.

Let’s say you decide – not nature, not society, not others, not algorithms.

A question across generations and cultures.

Often asked in a look, a gesture, a headline, a title.

Is it beautiful to show our strength?

Is it dangerous? Is it acceptable? Is it practical? Is it radical?

Our strength is an aspect of our beauty, just as our beauty is an aspect of strength.

Do we find our strength alone? In numbers? In nature? through work? Through family?

Is it physical, metaphorical, spiritual, or ethereal?

How do we nurture it, channel it, use it for good?

Use your voice, your eyes, your beautiful intellect.

Share your beautiful strength. Now is always a good time.
