Battle of the Sexes: May 8 at the Delaware Art Museum

Organized as a participatory experience by The Philadelphia Women’s Caucus for Art, Battle of the Sexes presents works by women artists, each of whom has invited a male artist to exhibit with her. Artists’ names will not appear on labels identifying the works. Visitors will receive ballots, on which they may vote on whether each work was created by a female or male artist. The results will be tallied and posted on this website on May 7th, along with the names and genders of the artists. Results will also be published on the Philadelphia-WCA blog, and emailed to voters who request the results on their ballots. In accord with The Women’s Caucus for Art’s mission to create community through art, education, and social activism, Battle of the Sexes will have you looking, thinking, talking, voting, and coming back to see the mysteries revealed.

C. Back & B. Tobia
