Tiffany Shlain: Dendrofemenology: A Feminist History Tree Ring
November 1, 2023 - November 4, 2023
The National Mall,
Washington, D.C.

Tiffany Shlain teams up with the National Women’s History Museum to bring her latest show out of the galleries and into one of the country’s most prolific public realms: the National Mall. The California based artist-activist’s Feminist History Tree Ring comes front and center, featuring annotations on each ring that serves as a timeline of notable moments in women’s history, from Wu Zetian’s tenure as China’s only female ruler beginning in 690 and the United States’ flip-flopping on the legality of abortion access to the 1972 advent of the birth control pill and the eventual repeal of Roe v. Wade in 2022. A plethora of whitespace invites viewers to imagine how the future might unfold on the precipice of a major election year.
