Description

December 17, 2016 – January 21, 2017

More than 40 self-identified feminist artists speak out against misogyny in the provocatively-titled exhibition, F*ck U! In the Most Loving Way. Organized in response to the 2016 Presidential campaign and election, the exhibition examines in raw detail how the artists react to patriarchy and shines a spotlight on women's identities and embodied experiences. Together with national juried artists, this exhibition features the works of groundbreaking artists from the beginning of the feminist art movement and internationally-known contemporary artists.
