A Feminist Tea Party

20 Jay Street, 212-366-6900
April 11 - April 15, 2011
Web Site

A Feminist Tea Party, a project that at its inception was meant to last only an afternoon, has continued now for over a year. After several shows in a variety of venues, we are very excited about our first solo exhibition, at the NYFA Gallery.

Our project lies somewhere between a contemporary consciousness-raising group, a performance, an installation and a joke. Provoked by the Tea Party protests, our project recasts the “tea party” as a playful, progressive, inquisitive and inclusive space.

We will be serving tea, sweets, and joining guests every day from April 11th to April 15th in our installation, a recreation of a mid-century parlor.

Each day a different co-host or team of co-hosts will present a conversation or event, engaging guests in conversation surrounding a topic related to feminism that they have chosen for this time and space. Please see our schedule page for more details.

As always, everyone is welcome regardless of your gender, your political persuasion or whether you identify as feminist. Please join us, and make our collaboration your own.
