Embrace The Wave commends the victories and challenges women artists face in society. In celebration of our lives as women, the exhibition documents our experiences. The work demonstrates women artists embracing strength within the Forth Wave of feminism.

The objective is to provide a space where women artists bring an alternative focus to the representations that our society negligently portrays. It exemplifies the fact that we should not be afraid of the stigma that the word feminism brings, it is the awareness of the strength, talent, intellect, and community that women are able to achieve.
