Is feminism still a useful framework, a relic of history, or a roadmap for the future? How does feminism provide a way to take a critical stance in the world today, and what are its limitations? How can you ‘perform’ a feminist identity or point of view? Are you a feminist? Why, or why not?
Over 30 contemporary artists, working in media including silkscreen, watercolor, fiber arts, and video, explore feminism’s impact and potential, and create an opportunity to represent more diverse and inclusive feminisms.
PARTICIPATING ARTISTS: Taylor Apostol, Teresa Ascencao, Rachelle Beaudoin, Jessica Caponigro, Jeanne Ciravolo, Ella Cooper, Elizabeth D’Amico, Elena Dahl, Lisa DeLoria Weinblatt, Kara Dunne, Nicole Foran, Ann Forbush, Raquel Fornasaro, Melissa General, Catherine Graffam, Katya Grokhovsky, Shelby Head, Alex Hovet, Michael Hubbard, Barbara Kendrick, Eddie Lanieri, Gray Lyons, Ashley Normal, Lorna Ritz, Adele Sanborn, Deb Schmill, Rhonda Urdang, Ngoc-Tran Vu, Hanna Washburn, Sarah Bates Washburn, Tory Wright Lee, Wen Yu, and Alexandra Zevin.
