Exhibition Opening: Nasty Women Connecticut at the Lyman Allyn
Friday 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Nasty Women Connecticut- The Will to Change: Gathering as Praxis at the Lyman Allyn Art Museum
Suggested Donation $10, cash or card at the door
Celebrate the sixth iteration of Nasty Women Connecticut’s annual exhibition on Friday, June 24. This exhibition looks to the writing of bell hooks to make sense of feminism shortcomings to further her project of gathering as an essential activity of feminist movement. We design this year’s exhibition as a space for creative forms of gathering and hosting that celebrates openness and inclusivity, but also makes space for our contemporary skepticism to come to the foreground. What is art’s capacity to mobilize feminist movement and positive social change?
Evoking hooks’ text, The Will to Change, Nasty Women Connecticut presents work by artists, designers, poets, curators, performers, community-organizers, cultural producers and thinkers of all backgrounds that wrestles with this question through the illumination of first-person perspectives.
The opening will feature three performances, Monstrous and Terrible to Behold by Heather Sincavage, The Labor of Speech by Julie Graves Krishnaswami, and Eidolon of A-Ngoh: Journey by Julie Chen. Enjoy music, food, and drinks to celebrate the opening.
