Inspired by Me Too and Time's Up, this original collaborative BHCC multimedia installation tells the stories of the women who educate and lead our communities, and hope for more visibility. It reflects on, interacts with and projects on these invisible lives under the skin of our city and invites the public to pause, to look at faces we see every day but don't look at, to listen to voices we hear everywhere, but don't listen to and to walk through it to become a part of it.
Artist, poet and activist Janet Cormier returns to BHCC with a set of new paintings. See these deeply human portraits of the public and private selves of women that honor the complex lives and shared experiences of women everywhere.
Interact with this expertly curated publication and digital resources exhibit from the BHCC collection that illustrates how women have shaped the past and the present, and how they are also mapping our future.

Sociologist Matthew Desmond is the author of New York Times bestseller and winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Nonfiction, Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City. In 2015, Desmond was awarded a MacArthur Genius Grant for “revealing the impact of eviction on the lives of the urban poor and its role in perpetuating racial and economic inequality.” His landmark work Evicted tells the stories of eight families living on the edge and the landlords who control their fate. Desmond will transform our understanding of extreme poverty and economic exploitation (unfair or inadequate pay for work) while providing fresh ideas for solving one of the most urgent issues facing America today - housing insecurity.
Participate in a discussion with women artists from the disPLACED Gallery Exhibit as they take on current issues facing women today—advocating for social justice, immigration reform and equal pay.
With Gloria Carrigg, Janet Cormier and Deta Galloway
