state, San Francisco, CA

Saturday, January 6 – Friday, February 16, 2018

 

 

AKArt and state are pleased to present Object Action: The “F” Word in a Post-Truth Era, to mark the inauguration of Collect For Change—an initiative which collaborates with artists across disciplines, offering artwork with a portion of sales benefitting a charity personally selected by each artist. A group exhibition that is a feminist response to the one-year anniversary of the current administration, the show highlights “objects” and works by female artists “objecting” to a dominant paradigm through innovative media in the feminist realm. Featured artists Ana Teresa Fernández, Chitra Ganesh, Michelle Hartney, Angela Hennessy, Nadja Verena Marcin, Sanaz Mazinani, and Michele Pred, will donate a portion of all artwork sales to Art & Abolition, NARAL Pro-Choice California, Planned Parenthood, Girls Inc., and 350.org. Opening Saturday, January 6, 2018 with a reception from 5-8pm, and on view through February 16, programming (which will continue to be announced throughout the show’s duration)—comprised of collaborations with arts entities that have histories of advocating for equitable representation, such as Gallery Wendi Norris and Pacific Felt Factory—will include a series of performances and events designed to cultivate discourse, hope, and action within communities that continue to struggle with the current political and social landscape.

 

Curated by Amy Kisch, Founder + CEO of AKArt and Collect For Change; Danielle Smith and Kimberly Verde, Founders of state and principals of FRAMEWORK; and Heather Zises, Founder of (READ)art and Editor of 50 Contemporary Women Artists (forthcoming in 2018), the show will be accompanied by a Community Action Station highlighting benefitting organizations, as well as others doing work on the feminist front. The show also will feature a Pop-Up Shop of zines and editions by a roster of artists including Sadie Barnette, Kelly Inouye, and Piyali Banejie’s The Sacred Labyrinth, as well as a curatorial selection by Aimee Rubensteen (of Rojas Rubensteen Projects) of works by Phoebe Rose Gittelson, Meirav Ong, and Monica Uszerowicz. A ‘boutique’ selling Diana Kane's Feminist Gold clothing line, Nouveau Classical Project’s #fffp tees, and Allie Pohl's Ideal Woman jewelry also will be on site.

 

Featured in the exhibition are photographic works from Ana Teresa Fernández’ Arrastre series, taken during a performance in which the artist stages and subverts a traditional ‘rite of passage’ of a boy entering manhood through mastery of a horse at Tulum’s cenote sinkholes—where Mayans sacrificed virgin women; Mixed media work from Chitra Ganesh’s Protest Fantasy series which depict portraits of women who struggle with protest everyday; An interactive performance piece and installation, The Weight of Words II, by Michelle Hartney which addresses the president’s use of divisive, hate-filled language; A site-specific installation and large-scale sculptural works by Angela Hennessy that explore racialized identity, visibility, and materiality; How To Undress in Front of Your Husband, a video by Nadja Verena Marcin, which turns a 1960s how-to video on disrobing, into a punctive performance that delightfully combats the male gaze; A photographic tapestry by Sanaz Mazinani, May you make your dreams longer than the night: 1968-2018, which responds to the Women’s March protests; and multiple objects and installations by Michele Pred such as Wage Gaps, which features vintage purses with neon feminist slogans from her Pred-a-Porter series, and Riot Shields which sport feminist slogans painted in pink nail polish on police shields. The shields were first was carried on Inauguration Day in Washington D.C., and most recently during Art Basel Miami Beach at the artist’s Parade Against the Patriarchy.

 

A ‘sister’ parade will be held as part of Object Action: The “F” Word in a Post-Truth Era on Sunday, January 21 at 12pm from state to Pacific Felt Factory arts complex—where a satellite exhibition exploring feminist perspectives will be held. Both the Miami and San Francisco performances seek to reflect and amplify the notions of shared and collective experience within the feminist movement, by bringing together the unique voices and expressions of artists advocating reflection, justice, and change. Join the conversation on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using hashtags #ObjectAction #ForChange #ForFeminism
