Suffrage 125 contemporary artwork: Request for Proposal
Wellington Museum plans to acknowledge the 125th anniversary of Suffrage in a contemporary, thought-provoking, awareness raising and creative fashion! As such, we are commissioning an artwork to hang in the historic Board Room; a strong statement and juxtaposition to what is currently a very male dominated space. Although we are open to medium, textile works will be strong contenders given the historic banners women have created together to promote their causes (think Suffrage or 1913 Waterfront Dispute).
As we have been considering the project our thinking has been along the lines of - 125 years of Suffrage - So what? Are women in Aotearoa New Zealand equal today
