ABOUT FEMINIST ART GROUP
FEMINIST ART GROUP INITIATED SEPTEMBER 4, 2015 ...
The first action by the Feminist Art Group was Upstate Video Vignette Project 2015. The idea was to invite artists to film short vignettes of performance actions with the lens, concepts created by the participating artists. Over the course of three days the artists collaborated ending the weekend with one final performance action.
The second action by the Feminist Art Group was Burning Woman. A concept created by the artist Adriana Magaña for the winter solstice. Jill McDermid (Grace Exhibition Space and Rosehill) was proposed with this project and invited the group to build the giant object.
The third action by the Feminist Art Group was Upstate Video Vignette Project II 2016. This was the second round over the course of three days at Rosekill where the artists created live action, vignette videos and collaboration.
The fourth action by the Feminist Art Group will be the Knights of the Round Table conference at Grace Exhibition Space Brooklyn, NY 2017. This event will involve the roughly 50 invited artists over the course of two days to create work, host workshops, build objects and normalize co-working and collaboration with powerful, focused respectful artists.www.ivcastellanos.com/feminist-art-group/
ABOUT GRACE EXHIBITION SPACE
Opened in 2006, Grace Exhibition Space is devoted exclusively to Performance Art. We offer an opportunity to experience visceral and challenging works by the current generation of international performance artists whether emerging, mid career or established. Being a Brooklyn loft, our events are presented on the floor, not on a stage, dissolving the boundary between artist and viewer. This is how performance art is meant to be experienced and our mission is the glorification of performance art.
Grace Exhibition Space presents over 30 curated live performance art exhibitions each year, showcasing new work by more than 400 performance artists from across the United States and the world since 2006. Grace Space received fiscal sponsorship through Fractured Atlas in 2007.
Grace Exhibition Space is Directed by Jill McDermid-Hokanson and Erik Hokanson.
