Revolution at Point Zero: Feminist Social Practice Exhibition

March 10, 2017 at Columbia DEPS in Chicago.

tracking.php?code=USy27av6V0duJH114ZWLEq

The Glass Curtain Gallery
1104 S. Wabash Ave, First Floor
Chicago, Il 60605

Opening Reception- Revolution at Point Zero
Curated by Neysa Page-Lieberman and Melissa Hilliard Potter

The exhibition Revolution at Point Zero: Feminist Social Practice is the launch of an on-going research project led by Neysa Page-Lieberman and Melissa Potter examining the legacy of feminism in socially-engaged art. Point Zero takes place at Columbia College’s Glass Curtain Gallery, and spans along the Wabash Arts Corridor to partner programs around the city. The exhibition generates conversations which reframe socially-engaged art with intersectional feminism at its core, and proposes a new feminist-centered theory for defining the field of social practice at large.

The exhibition features women-identified, North American artists whose work focuses on themes of domestic labor; human trafficking; racial and gender justice; healing through consciousness-raising, and radical acts of the personal and political. Artist projects include: Laura Anderson Barbata’s Julia Pastrana: A Homecoming; Marisa Jahn’s The CareForce; Las Nietas de Nonó’s Ilustraciones de la Mecánica; and Megan Young’s The Longest Walk. Additional artists and projects may be included, as well as documentation of events and performances as they transpire.

Revolution at Point Zero is the springboard for The Longest Revolution (opening 2018), the first comprehensive exhibition and publication to reclaim the feminist art movement’s collaborative, inclusive, community-based and social-justice tenets as the progenitor of contemporary socially-engaged art.

A special section of the Glass Curtain’s Point Zero exhibition will be devoted to illustrating and generating the curators’ on-going research, writing and development of The Longest Revolution. This research will be bolstered by a partnership with Open Engagement along with a full day symposium on the topic. The critical work accomplished in 2017 will help build this crucial and long-overlooked feminist scholarship.

Edra Soto is a Chicago-based artist, educator, curator, and co-director of the artist-run outdoor project space THE FRANKLIN. Commissioned to build a piece for The Arts Club’s Winter Garden Project, Soto will be in conversation with art historian Daniel R. Quiles about her work. Expanding on her interest in architectural interventions (members may recall her work Manual Graft on the Mies staircase windows during last Fall’s open house), Soto brings us Screenhouse, a freestanding social structure influenced by traditional garden gazebo models and decorative patterns. Come toast the unveiling of Screenhouse and learn about the inspiration behind it.

Free and open to the public.
