UPRISE at The Untitled Space opens tonight

I have mixed feelings on the zillion protest art shows that are going on right now. It feels like some artists are just capitalizing and jumping on the bandwagon, while others are honestly reacting to the fucked up state of affairs that has come to our country the past few months. One gallery that is doing it right is The Untitled Space in Tribeca, who has partnered with the ERA Coalition to bring education and conversation along with visual art expression. Tonight, UPRISE opens at 45 Lispenard Street with the work of 80 artists who are reacting against the potential shit show that will be unleashed with this inauguration. Check the gallery’s site for other programming in conjunction with the exhibition.

The Untitled Space gallery is pleased to present exhibition, UPRISE / ANGRY WOMEN, curated by gallery director and artist Indira Cesarine, featuring the work of 80 female contemporary artists responding to the current social and political climate in America in light of the recent presidential election. The exhibit will take place from January 17- 28, opening the week of the presidential inauguration, with several events to take place including an opening reception on January 17th and event on January 22nd – which marks the 44th anniversary of landmark case Roe vs Wade.

The UPRISE / ANGRY WOMEN exhibit 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 a portion of proceeds will benefit their 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.
