The hero she needs isn’t always the hero she’s expecting.
The hero she needs doesn’t wear a cape.
The hero she needs may be sitting right next to her.
The hero she needs may be overlooked.
The hero she needs isn’t a pop icon or celebrity.
The hero she needs may be herself.
The Hero She Needs, curated by Arushi Kapoor and Tina Tangalakis, opens at Arushi Gallery, Los Angeles on September 10, 2022. The exhibit brings together an elite group of international female artists to celebrate unexpected female figures in their lives who uplift, inspire and guide them.
The works presented in The Hero She Needed seek to evoke a conversation about how women supporting women leads to women overcoming systemic and cultural hinderances that makes it difficult for them to advance. The artists are urged to present up to three artworks that remind them of impactful times when a women in their life led them to success.
In the spirit of celebrating the female spirit, we have also teamed up with UNICEF NEXT GEN to bring awareness to their “Equity for Girls” program. 100% of proceeds from select artwork will go directly to UNICEF
