Throughout time and across all cultures women have held the role of prophet, oracle, seer, and diviner. Their stories have warned where society was heading. In exchange for their wisdom they have been banned and burned, but also revered and channeled.

The exhibition “What She Said” includes 2D, 3D and performance art, as well as free public programming. The show places focus on feminist strategies that address current dystopian reality. “What She Said,” starts with the premise that extreme circumstances create fertile ground for visionary speculation.
