CLOSING RECEPTION & LAUNCH OF PADDLE 8 BENEFIT AUCTION
Sunday February 5th
2pm – 6pm
As the resistance grows, so does the new art movement and The Untitled Space gallery is helping to lead the way. UPRISE / ANGRY WOMEN, a group show of 80 female artists responding to the election opened to a packed gallery on January 17th and due to popular demand the exhibition dates will now be extended through February 5th. Upon the show’s conclusion, esteemed art auction site Paddle8 will partner with The Untitled Space for an exclusive benefit auction featuring much of the work in UPRISE.
A portion of the proceeds from the auction will be donated to the ERA Coalition’s Fund for Women’s Equality. The Fund for Women’s Equality is a charitable organization, working to raise awareness on gaps in the law that leave women without legal recourse from sex discrimination, and developing educational resources on the need for a constitutional provision to protect and promote equal rights for women. Founded by Jessica Neuwirth, author of “Equal Means Equal”, the ERA Coalition board also includes Gloria Steinem, Teresa Younger and many other prominent women’s rights activists.
From curator, Indira Cesarine:
“We are pleased to extend the dates for the UPRISE / ANGRY WOMEN exhibit, which has given female artists a means to express themselves in regards to the social and political climate in America, and empower others with their visual imagery. The exhibit has been incredibly well received, and we are looking forward to closing the exhibit with an event celebrating the launch of the PADDLE 8 Benefit Auction which will help raise money for the ERA Coalition’s Fund for Women’s Equality.”
In times of political turmoil, art has always been an important avenue for resistance and provided a space for marginalized voices. With his misogynistic language and his conservative cabinet picks, Trump has made it clear that he does not respect women and intends to do away with many of our hard-won rights. The UPRISE / ANGRY WOMEN exhibition provides a much needed platform for female artists of all backgrounds to demonstrate their thoughts and feelings towards the new president through a wide range of art practices. From paintings, to sculpture, photography and textiles, many of the featured artists used their visual practice not only to create a critical dialogue regarding the president-elect and his policies but also to defend what they hold dear – America’s diversity, solidarity among women, the environment, and reproductive rights.
