Present Futures: Experiments in Feminist Futurity is a contemporary art exhibition that will open the two-day Transnational Feminist Networks Symposium from September 12-13, 2024, at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania. The exhibition will be displayed in the Forum of the Annenberg School for Communication (ASC) during the fall semester, from mid-August to late November 2024. Symposium organizers seek submissions from artists who creatively engage the symposium's themes, specifically envisioning feminist solidarities across space and time, in everyday life, with an outlook towards “the future we want to see, right now, in the present.”


We encourage submissions from up-and-coming Philadelphia-based artists and international artists, especially those who identify as BIPOC, LGBTQIA, LatinX, and artists with disabilities.  

The Symposium accepts a diverse array of finished pieces on canvas, paper, photographs, and installations, including video and audio, as well as, craftivism, quilt work, textiles, and more.
