BRINGING SHE’S GONE TO WASHINGTON, DC, TO FIGHT DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
December 2 – 9, 2021: A She’s Gone mini-exhibition will be shown at the Strongin Collection art gallery, 1631 Wisconsin Avenue NW, Georgetown, in Washington, DC, with an opening at 6:30 PM on December 2. Remember the Women Institute, in partnership with the Strongin Collection, She’s Gone, and the Moment Gallery of Moment Magazine, and in cooperation with the Embassy of Israel to the United States, is bringing part of Israeli artist Keren Goldstein’s She's Gone art installation to Washington, DC in early December. After opening on December 2, the mini-exhibition will run through December 9. The She's Gone art installation, which features the clothing of Israeli murdered victims of intimate partner violence, speaks on behalf of the innocent victims of violence inflicted by spouses or other family members. Remember the Women Institute is adding to the exhibition two victims’ garments from the United States. See information about these two women, Jana Lynn Mackey and Simeonette (Sissy) Mapes .
NOTE: PROOF OF VACCINATION AND MASKS ARE REQUIRED TO ENTER THE GALLERY, WHICH IS ONE FLIGHT UP.
On Tuesday, December 7, at 4:30 PM EST, the Moment Gallery of Moment Magazine, the Strongin Collection, and the Israel Embassy will join us to present a related webinar featuring She’s Gone creator Keren Goldstein and an expert on domestic violence. Please contact [email protected] for a registration link and further information. She's Gone is a protest against the international tragic phenomenon of gender-based murder, specifically intimate partner (domestic) violence. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this heinous assault against women has been recorded in greater numbers worldwide.
