19.5% @ Little Berlin

  • Little Berlin 2430 Coral Street Philadelphia, PA, 19125 United States (map)

“19.5%” is a group exhibition curated by Chelsey Luster that showcases works

by Chris Friday, Chloe Pinero, Jessica S. Oler, Hysterical Men, Nikki D’Agostino, Lucy H.

West, Gabe Loredo, Annalise Yuri Murphy, Jacqueline White, Shelby Fleming, Autumn

Wallace, Alezendria Decking, Kelley Prevard, Alfiatul Nurdin, Francena Ottley, and

Gerald Brown. The works in this exhibition are responding to the increase of women in

congress as a result of the 2018 midterm elections and will be held at Little Berlin


The election results were a monumental moment for women in the U.S. and

symbolized a collective hope for more gender equality. Even though there are more

women than ever in congress, women only make up 19.5% of the total number of

elected representatives. This exhibition aims to remind viewers that the project of

representation remains incomplete and that a change in politics will have to be driven

by an articulation and visibility of new needs and experiences.

This exhibition creates a space for these women artists to challenge what

women empowerment can look like, vocalize their own political views, and to start

critical conversations as we enter 2020, the year of the presidential election.

The opening reception will take place on Friday, September 6th, 2019 and the

closing reception with an artist panel discussion will take place on Saturday, September

28th, 2019.

P.S. Outside of these dates the show will be open weekly on Sundays from 10-4pm
