Three days before the presidential inauguration, the next art resistance started at UPRISE/ANGRY WOMEN, an exhibit at Untitled Space of 80 female artists responding to the election. On Tuesday night, throngs of people waited in the rain to view artwork that reflected the moods and feelings of women who feel deeply affected by the misogyny and intolerance perpetrated by Donald Trump. From paintings, to sculpture, photography and textiles, many of the featured artist 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.

Curated by Indira Cesarine, UPRISE/ANGRY WOMEN is presented in partnership with the ERA COALITION, a political organization that is working to support passage and ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment, and 25% of proceeds will benefit their Fund for Women’s Equality. Many of the featured artists attended the opening which presented a rare opportunity for artists, press, and gallery goers to delve deeper into the meanings behind the artwork.

The conversations will continue with an artist talk hosted  by Indira Cesarine and Rose McGowan on Sunday, January 22nd, the 44th anniversary of Roe vs Wade. Ann Lewis (aka Gilf!), Annika Connor, Cinnamon Willis, Daniela Raytchev, Kristen Williams, Jackie Maidenfed, Indira Cesarine, Maggie Dunlap, Rose McGowan and Sophia Wallace will all give their unique perspectives on “art as activism” and the future of women’s rights in America in light of the Trumpocalypse.

Work featured in UPRISE/ANGRY WOMEN was selected from out of more than 1,800 entries from more than 400 different artists, proving that American females have a lot to express regarding the election. In times of political turmoil, art has always been an important avenue for resistance and provided a space for marginalized voices. Cesarine agrees, saying, “I think in times when we are challenged as a culture, artists become more creative and more productive.” 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.

In our new digital age, times have changed and the revolution will surely be televised, tweeted, live streamed, and Instagrammed. The sharable qualities of visual art means that it’s influence as a catalyst for change and resistance will only continue. UPRISE/ANGRY WOMEN runs through January 28th but if you can’t make it in person to see the exhibition be sure to check out the show via Instagram and Artsy. Every view of a piece of political art is a step towards more awareness of the issues at hand.

Founded in 2014 by Indira Cesarine, the gallery features an ongoing curation of exhibits of emerging and established contemporary artists exploring conceptual framework and boundary pushing ideology through mediums of painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, video and performance art.
