Sistagraphy
THE ART OF PERSISTENCE 2017



Call for Entry

for

THE ART OF PERSISTENCE

 

From Senator Elizabeth Warren’s mic being muted as she persisted to read the words of Coretta Scott King on the senate floor came such a clarion call for women to take a stand. Women have taken such a stand that there has been such a national movement on “nevertheless, she persisted.”  Images of women have flooded social media, community, television, etc.  Senator Warren’s persistence had the members of Sistagraphy ask “what else persists? who else persists? And why persistence?”  We also asked, what does persistence look like to us?

We decided upon The Art of Persistence as the exhibition title.  We took the title from past made it more relevant and kept it current not just past tense.

Some looked at the words and thought of pictures.  Others thought of pictures and then titles.  But through it all we knew that our title was powerful but we realize we had to make it understandable to our viewing audience.  The following ideas and thoughts came about to help with that understanding:

1.    Nature shows us its example of persistence.
       a.    Spring is persistent in following winter and winter is persistent in not wanting to relinquish its stronghold on the season.  We know spring will win out and spring will persist until it becomes.
       b.    The seasons are always seen as feminine—Mother Nature.
       c.    You cannot have a sunrise without a sunset.

2.    Individually the iconic one would be the one woman standing in front of the police officers defying them.  Women standing against the odds.

3.    Not so extreme and so common people.
       a.    Women in their everyday lives trying to achieve, struggling, and/or making it to the next step for themselves and their family.
       b.    A young girl walking down the street or someone carrying a bag or someone sitting watching TV.
       c.    People merely existing.  I am just here.

4.    Women, socially, in non-traditional roles –construction is men’s work, truck drivers, sports, sports casters, etc.

5.    Something as simple as doing a portrait of grandmother or a young girl or something that is common.

6.    In health:  Breast cancer survivors, HIV survivor, etc.

7.    The birth of things struggling to survive.
