Since the election cycle began— and especially since its painful result— women have felt increasingly left behind by our nation and unheard. In response to this turmoil comes a badass exhibit made by and for Angry Women.

Our feminist friends over at The Untitled Space will be presenting the group exhibition, UPRISE / ANGRY WOMEN. The exhibition expresses various women artists' responses to the current political climate. The all-female exhibition features 80 contemporary artists and runs from January 17th through January 28th, with a special event on the 22nd in honor of the 44th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

The exhibit is presented in partnership with the ERA Coalition, an organization dedicated to getting the Equal Rights Amendment passed and ratified, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit their Fund for Women’s Equality, a charitable organization that works to raise awareness on gaps in the law that leave women without legal recourse from sex discrimination.

"We received an incredible response from female artists all over the country regarding the exhibit, with over 1800 submissions of artwork by over 400 artists," says curator Indira Cesarine. "It was by far one of the most challenging exhibits I have curated to date, as so many talented artists submitted such a wide array of powerful works."

The artist statements available show the intent of some of the UPRISE / ANGRY WOMEN contributors. Artist Audrey Lyall explains how the recent events have changed her work. "With recurring events such as police brutality against people of color, the mistreatment of Native Americans, and of course, the election my art has taken a political turn," she wrote. "My paintings and drawings provide a view of how these events have affected my outlook on the United States, my attitude, and my modes of self-expression as a young Black woman living in Brooklyn, New York."
