Joyful to announce that I am one of the participating artist during the Bad Feminist exhibition at Melkweg Expo. Even though I don’t consider my work as purely feminist art, it does share a lot of common ground.
Melkweg Expo gives the stage to contemporary feminist artists. They represent a new generation of visual artists who use their art to tackle feminist issues and they create a universe for the bad, the bold and the brave feminist.
Melkweg Expo provides a platform for contemporary expressions of the feminist movement in its latest wake.
The activist artists take on outdated patriarchal systems, misogynist language, sexism in music and encourage the exchange of information on feminist issues. Armed with the power of language and visuals, they spark small revolutions and challenge audiences with their installations, videos and visual artwork. Disrupt your understanding of feminism and feel free to speak out, question and unleash the Bad Feminist within.
NAP Nieuws has interviewed some of the artists including myself and wrote an article about the exhibition.
Opening February 7th at 18:00 ‘til March 8th. Tuesday until Sunday 11:00 – 23:00. Entrance via MILK café, Lijnbaansgracht 234a 1017 PH Amsterdam.
