We all know how hard it is for women to support each other. After years of being both overtly and subliminally encouraged to compete with one another, women naturally put each other down. That’s why artist and curator Indira Cesarine has launched SHE INSPIRES, a new group exhibition featuring 60 contemporary artists paying tribute to the women that have influenced them. Showcasing works by BULLETT favorites, Sam Cannon and Kelsey Bennett, among others, the exhibit brings together artists across all mediums to celebrate the impact women have had on the arts, and their undeniable role in the industry’s future.

“As feminism continues to gain traction, we are finally shifting our focus to include the accomplishments of many remarkable women who have influenced our culture,” explains Cessarine. “The SHE INSPIRES exhibit honors contemporary and historical women, it celebrates them and tells their stories, which should be rightfully included as not just ‘women’s history,’ but our history.”

Opening tomorrow at The Untitled Space in Manhattan, SHE INSPIRES acknowledges powerful women from Cher to Joan Didion, through enigmatic portraits and visual art. The exhibition will also donate 10% of all proceeds to She Should Run, a non-profit organization focused on empowering future female leaders. With pieces honoring all kinds of revolutionary leaders, the exhibit highlights female influence on not just the arts, but our everyday lives.
SHE INSPIRES will be on view tomorrow, until May 20, at The Untitled Space in NYC.
