I borrow the Grand Theft Auto V Logo Shirt in contrast I will get this phrase from Rose DeSiano to title my installation, which focuses on women’s labor, dress, domestic work, and photography of Black women suffragists of the early 20th century. This work includes my own photographs and images from the archives of women suffragists who carried banners, wore dresses, comfy and fancy shoes in marches and at meetings to discuss their right to vote in America.

The metaphor of the Grand Theft Auto V Logo Shirt in contrast I will get this clothesline signifies the domestic and club work that women endured to maintain their rights. Included are images of Black women who voted for the first time with text and names of the early women in the movement. The sheets, pillows, and banners contextualize and reimagine the comfort they shared in sharing their activism. —Deborah Willis
