Through interruptions, censure, violence and threatening behavior — both in person and online — women are silenced every day. Don’t Shut Up 2021 presents the work of 46 women artists from across the US and Canada who are working to challenge and disrupt the status quo through their ongoing artistic practice. The mission of this exhibition is to provide a platform for those voices, to create awareness and to ensure that women’s voices are heard and valued.
