Girlhood is a Spectrum

We are pleased to announce an open call for writers and visual artists to contribute to a new exhibition— Girlhood Is a Spectrum.

We invite you to speak on the girlhood flux in the language of poetry, prose, or images. Many of you may have seen the memes with this text that celebrate the versatility of girlhood, from ethereality to creepiness, from fawn-like to Kafkaesque. What are the poles of this spectrum for you and what lies in-between? It is up to you how to interpret the theme.

No two girlhoods are the same–so your voice matters!
