Exhibit X: Holding Water

Exhibit X: Holding Water

Experience The Locker Room: art installation and performances that bring together seven women with different experiences of family or systemic violence.

Holding Water alludes to the way women are compelled to keep proving their innocence to the partners, court systems and societal attitudes that repeatedly doubt, disbelieve and refute them.

Beyond evidence and personal story, these women share a vision: to reach out. Not for pity, nor to teach a lesson, not for understanding or vindication, but to stop the next generations from living with violence.

Can their call to action hold water in our world?
