The Feminist Opposition
March 4 - April 1
Saturday, March 4th, 6 - 8 p.m.
Hera Gallery is excited to present The Feminist Opposition, an intersectional exploration of contemporary feminism’s role in opposition to the current cultural and political climate.
Jessica Hong, curatorial assistant at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston writes of the show,
“The Feminist Opposition can be seen as a rallying cry or a call to arms, particularly in light of recent events. The selected works capture the spirit of the show’s namesake, but as a whole explores how opposition can be both productive as well as positive. With the saturation of negative news, it is important to remain open and not succumb to that negativity.
Photographs complicating our binary views of gender and womanhood, works with explicitly political messaging, and those that examine the socio-cultural landscape, The Feminist Opposition celebrates the diversity of artistic output, identities, and perspectives.”
As one of our most widely dispersed and heavily shared calls, we had submissions from all across the U.S. and welcomed artists of a multitude of genders, race, and identity.
