Works by Liz Linden & Jen Kennedy @ BRASS IN POCKET, Booklyn Artists Alliance

Curators Aimee Lusty and Kate Wadkins seek submissions for a feminist art zine to be released at the close of BRASS IN POCKET, a group show which opened Friday, September 13, 2013 and continues through October 27th at Booklyn Artists Alliance.

The zine seeks to represent contemporary feminist artists who explore new possibilities in their respective media, producing work that breaks conventional boundaries in terms of subject and process. The zine also aims to challenge and play on traditional notions of “feminist art.” This is Booklyn Art Gallery’s third open call for submissions for a collaborative zine published in tandem with the gallery’s programming.

Submissions will be accepted in two sizes, 8.5 x 5.5 inches, or 8.5 x 7.5 inches. All submissions should be black and white, at 300dpi. The deadline for submissions has been extended to October 20, 2013. Please send all submissions to booklynopencall@gmail.com.

THATCamp Feminisms East

The Barnard Center for Research on Women (BCRW) along with the Humanities and Technology Camp are presenting a collaborative “unconference” exploring innovation in the digital humanities, focusing on feminist interventions.

The event takes place on Saturday, March 16, 10am – 5pm at Barnard College. Free and open to the public! You can register here at the THATCamp Feminisms East website. Registration is required and the venue will be wheelchair accessible!

Bringing together faculty, students, information professionals and activists from across the Northeast, THATCamp Feminisms will delve into both the technical and the theoretical questions central to the use of technology in the humanities—from how to utilize text mining or redesign the way information is communicated, to the ethical implications of digitizing archives and what it means to have assignments, classroom discussions or lectures online.

THATCamp Feminisms will provide a space for participatory learning at the intersection of feminism, academia and new media through discussion, skills-based workshops, and on the spot experimentation. People of all professions and skill levels are welcome. Co-sponsored by The Barnard Library and THATCamp Theory.

SOHO20 Fellowship and upcoming events

SOHO20 Chelsea Gallery has announced their call for fellowship applications, deadline March 1st. The gallery supports the work of women artists through exhibitions and public programming. All women artists working in any medium are welcome to apply.

The gallery is also teaming up with the Feminist Art Project (TPAF) and the College Art Association Annual Conference 2013 to present two events next month! Below are the details for an exciting weekend of events dedicated to feminism and art.

February 16 @ The Brooklyn Museum - Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium
TPAF@CAA Day of Panels
10am – 5:30pm // free and open to the public
Organized by Catherine Morris, Curator, Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, Brooklyn Museum.
The event features an impressive roster of artists, curators and critics in conversation surrounding feminism within art institutions, their archival practices, and more.

The symposium will focus on the intersections of feminist and institutional practices, asking how institutions have integrated feminist perspectives into their long term curatorial, collections, and programmatic objectives. Sessions will examine how the museum as a quasi-public space has and continues to negotiate representations of sexuality and gender; how institutions can be “queered” to become more inclusive and less normative, and how feminism may impact institutions in the long term through collection plans and mission statements. There will be a special focus on the role of the institutional archive as a platform particularly conducive to a feminist voice. 

You can see the full schedule of events here. 

February 17 @ SOHO20 Chelsea Gallery - 547 West 27th St, Suite 301, New York, NY
A Conversation on Performative Art: Women Redrawing/Performance

POC ZINE PROJECT’S “RACE RIOT” TOUR STARTS TODAY!

Image

By now you’ve probably already heard that our friends at the POC (People of Color) Zine Project are leaving for a 14-day tour starting today. We couldn’t be more excited.

In November 2011, we partnered with POC Zine Project and Barnard Zine Library to produce “Meet Me at the Race Riot: People of Color in Zines from 1990-Today,” a panel and corresponding zine show at Barnard College. After the event, Daniela Capistrano, founder of POC Zine Project, immediately started planning their 2012 tour, Race Riot!, with fellow Meet Me at the Race Riot participants Mimi Thi Nguyen and Osa Atoe. The tour kicks off tonight at 538 Johnson and returns to Brooklyn on October 7th to close the tour at Death by Audio.

The tour will consist of “DIY” events (like the kickoff this evening) featuring bands, music, and readers, as well as school-sponsored panels, bringing POC zines into the university. For a preview, see a video of our Meet Me at the Race Riot event produced by Barnard.

We at For the Birds have been busy making copies of Mimi Nguyen’s Race Riot zines to accompany the zinesters on their tour, and we’ll be sending copies of our own zine So You Want to Start a Feminist Collective… and International Girl Gang Underground to join them!

POC Zine Project has been spotlighting all of the members of the tour on their tumblr. Here are some of our favorite quotes:

Osa Atoe:

I think that being able to tour & travel has helped me deal with how white punk can be because I’ve been able to make connections with black & brown punks all over the country and even internationally.

Mariam Bastani:

Even though zines are largely seen as either a literary art form or as a “music thing,” imagine the transformative nature that zines could have in all aspects of our lives? The power of narratives being read straight from the pens of those living them with out fear of persecution within and outside of their own community, or, inversely, the recognition of a POC voice within their community and power lying in the ease in which a zine can be created—we don’t need anyone’s publishing money, we don’t need anyone’s approval.

 Mimi Nguyen:

I wanted to go on this tour… to connect with other punks of color about this thing we love and sometimes hate, to present something –a zine, a tour— that might make sense of that push and pull and give it a history, and then to create something new between us.

Cristy C. Road:

Emphasizing the voices of POC in Zine culture (and any media) is imperative to revolutionizing any “alternative” space. If diversity isn’t present we aren’t moving forward.

Anna Vo:

I decided to join the [POC Zine Project] tour because I thought it was an awesome opportunity to hang out with women of colour who I could hopefully talk to about things that I think about alot, but don’t necessarily get to talk about that much in the communities and cities that I live in! I’m working on the third issue of my punk zine Fix My Head, which is a collection of interviews with “Punx of Colour,” mostly women who have been playing in hardcore/punk bands for some time, and their experiences of racism/fetishisation/exclusion/etc.

“WINGING IT” AT C.L.I.T. FEST

FOR THE BIRDS is excited to announce that we will be presenting a workshop titled ”Winging It: Nurturing Authentic Communication in Feminist Organizing” at this weekend’s Combating Latent Inequality Together Fest, being held in Highland Park / New Brunswick, NJ.

SUNDAY, JULY 15
11AM-12:15PM

@ Reformed Church of Highland Park
19 S. 2nd Ave. Highland Park, New Jersey

Winging It: Nurturing Authentic Communication in Feminist Organizing

In this workshop, For the Birds (a New York-based feminist collective and distro) will guide a community discussion about internal and external struggles in feminist cultural and social justice organizing, creating feminist spaces, and coalition building. The Collective maintains that it is imperative to communicate authentically in order to bridge gaps, and to grow, both interpersonally and between groups. The workshop will discuss commonalities, such as the way that the efforts of many marginalized groups coalesce around issues like safer spaces, grassroots modes of organizing, and artistic and political visibility. For the Birds invites questions about their own processes, and seeks to find out how other feminists work through these issues and towards similar goals in their own groups and communities. This is a participatory workshop.

For additional C.L.I.T. Fest details visit their website. The entire schedule is posted here. I (Kate) am also curating a zine reading Friday night and speaking on a panel entitled “Art Labor: A Discussion of Art Practice, Presence, Preservation and Perseverance,” but I wrote a fairly lengthy blog post about that on my personal blog. For the Birds will be tabling Sunday as well.

To pump you up for the Fest, listen to this “once-in-a-lifetime” podcast with the C.L.I.T. Fest organizers, in which they discuss their process planning the Fest, their own experiences in activism and D.I.Y. communities, and why conversations like these are so vital.

And, while you’re at it, check out these C.L.I.T. Fest mixes!

WOMEN CENTER STAGE
@ The Living Theatre // Launched before the formal incorporation of Culture Project, Women Center Stage is our longest-running programmatic initiative. From the first collection of works presented under the festival mantle in 1996, Women Center Stage has grown into a multi-pronged initiative, an echo chamber for women artists to build community and share their stories, and a launch pad for provocative and relevant new work. The cornerstone of WCS is the annual Women Center Stage Festival, a dynamic and diverse laboratory for works in progress from women artists at all levels of their careers. Presented every March for Women’s History Month, the month-long Festival provides a much-needed setting for exploring new ideas and inspiration, testing out early stages of new work, and putting women artists in dialogue with their peers, new audiences, and critical review.

As artists who identify as queers, feminists, people of color, spell-casters and radicals, our work is saturated with the chroma of the vibrant lives and communities we have created and shared over the past decade and across geographic divides. Our histories are entwined, and color embodies the bright hues of the threads of collectivity, sexuality, gender, family, history and magic that bind us together. More info HERE.

STAFF PICKS
THIS MONTH’S NEWSWORTHY ITEMS

FROM WORDSWITHOUTBORDERS.ORG
For the Birds organizer Rosamund Hunter’s book review: “Margherita’s inner struggle with the Reich is sometimes startling, as when, for instance, she shuttles between her admiration of Adolf Hitler and Martin Luther, two men who have trod down opposite paths in historical memory. Margherita has internalized wartime propaganda, and she tries not to question Nazism since challenging it is to wish harm on her husband and homeland. Still, inevitably, there are moments of doubt.” Read more HERE.

FROM NYDAILYNEWS.COM
For the Birds organizer Kate Wadkins on the word “slut”: More than 500 years before Rush Limbaugh called Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke a “slut,” Geoffrey Chaucer used a form of the word to describe an “untidy man” in “The Canterbury Tales.” “Why is thy lord so sluttish, I thee pray, And is of power better clothes to bey,” he wrote in the 14th century poem. But in the ensuing centuries, the would come to take on different meanings – and much more provocative ones, as Limbaugh’s crude use of the word reminds.” Read more HERE.

FROM THEATLANTIC.COM
“The president is wary of being seen as the “angry black man.” People of color, women, and gays — who now have greater access to the centers of influence that ever before — are under pressure to be well-behaved when talking about their struggles.” Read more HERE.

FROM LA.STREETSBLOG.ORG
“Two months ago, when 22-year-old Bree’Anna Guzman was murdered in Lincoln Heights, the all-women bike group Ovarian-Pscyos Bicycle Brigade scrapped their previously planned ride to ride instead through the neighborhood to protest the killing. “Whose Streets,” one woman called out. “Our Streets” the more than 30 women riding answered.” Read more HERE.

FROM BIKESAFEBOSTON.COM
“It’s here! It’s NYC Bike Accident Report Card is HERE. It was generously, graciously and all-around awesomely printed by Article, an NYC-based art collective who — in addition to being bold advocates of safer cycling in NYC — have their inky fingers in a ton of creative projects.” Read more HERE.

FROM NEWSONE.COM
“I grow weary of actions without consequences and disrespect without anyone being held responsible. Just because a movement did some good doesn’t mean that it’s infallible. Occupy chapters have serious issues and there have been serious discussions about its relations with women and people of color.” Read more HERE.

WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH
FTB organizer Rosamund has been writing about radical women in history over at our blog for women’s history month. Meet Lucy Gonzales Parsons, Angela Davis & Yuri Kochiyama, Ida B. Wells-Barnett, and Ernestine Rose if you haven’t yet!

Barnard Zine Libary: http://zines.barnard.edu/
Barnard’s zines are written by women (cis- and transgender) with an emphasis on zines by women of color. We collect zines on feminism and femme identity by people of all genders. The zines are personal and political publications on activism, anarchism, body image, third wave feminism, gender, parenting, queer community, riot grrrl, sexual assault, trans experience, and other topics.

FOR THE BIRDS: http://forthebirdscollective.org/
FOR THE BIRDS is a New York City-based feminist collective. We work towards establishing alternative spaces that promote the creative interests of women-identified community members. For the Birds is a collaborative group of organizers with backgrounds in feminism, social justice work, and various artistic pursuits. Through DIY feminist cultural activism, For The Birds aims to empower and support radical women of action.

POC ZINE PROJECT: https://www.facebook.com/pages/POC-Zine-Project/304152466201
We want to make it easier for POC (People of Color) zine fans and their supporters to find a diverse selection of zines made by POC. Zines are a vital component in the long tradition of self-publication. They share knowledge and experiences that supplement (and often contradict) the information that other sources distribute, encouraging free thought. There are many valuable zine collections in the United States (many accessible online) but none that are devoted to curating POC zines. POC Zine Project’s mission is to makes ALL zines by POC easy to find, share, and distribute.
