One year after the onset of Covid 19 in NYC, we invite artists to reflect on the last twelve months. This expanse of time has been a period of reckoning, full of social unrest and major upheaval. So much growth, but still so much left un-done.

When painting the Washhouse series, Melanie Vote was searching for the untold stories of what might have occurred there, reckoning with a troubled North American past, masked behind a seemingly banal 100year-old structure. In the spirit of The Washhouse, initially an outbuilding used by people to launder garments, we are asking artists to create a work on paper and hang it on a clothesline at Equity Gallery, to produce and make visible their deepest concerns and literally bring them to light. We challenge you to create a work in response to a social issue. What is troubling you, keeping you up at night? What is most important to you to reveal or disclose?
