The higher up you go in the art world, the whiter and more masculine those getting paid are. Statistics show that the disparities that plague other industries, causing women to hear 80 cent to a man’s dollar, also lock women, and particularly women of color or and women with disabilities, out of opportunities to advance their creative careers. To do our parts to counteract these disparities, VAE and the National Humanities Center are dedicated our fall 2019 exhibition to a survey of female artists in the regional South. Reclaiming My Time is a juried exhibition that is open to any femme artist residing in the 11 states that comprise the regional South: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

About the Juror:
Roxana Pérez-Méndez is a video performance and installation artist who creates work about the slippery nature of contemporary history and identity through the lens of her own experience as a Puerto Rican woman. Pérez-Méndez also collaborates with fellow artist and colleague, Mario Marzan. Their joint effort, CAMPO RESEARCH STUDIO, is a collaborative process that fosters the integration of nature and art through research, public engagement and education. They utilize the intersection of the arts, geography and history as a catalyst for social dialogue and creative exchange of ideas. Pérez-Mendez holds a BFA from The Ohio State University and a MFA from Tyler School of Art and is currently an Associate Professor of Art at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
