Can women achieve fitness and athletic prowess while conforming to the social norms of femininity? Women in Motion explores the images of physically active women produced by governments, fitness advocates, advertisers, and artists in Europe and the United States during the first half of the twentieth century. Drawn from The Wolfsonian’s collection, the exhibition incorporates a variety of media, from posters and magazines to decorative and fine art. The exhibition is co-curated by FIU faculty members Laurie Shrage, professor of Philosophy and director of Women’s Studies, and Dionne Stephens, assistant professor of Psychology and African and African Diaspora Studies. Women in Motion is made possible with financial support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The opening is part of the Target Wednesday After Hours Program at the Frost Art Museum.
