A.I.R. Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Illegitimate And Herstorical, a group show curated via an open-call by Emily Roysdon. The exhibition features works by A Feminist Tea Party collective, Bland Boydston III, Rachel Farmer, Barbara Hammer, Reena Katz, Lucretia Knapp, Barbara Greene Mann, Alice O’Malley, Lacey Jane Roberts, Tobaron Waxman and invited artist Chris Vargas. This exhibition is the second in the Currents Exhibition series at A.I.R. Gallery.
Illegitimate And Herstorical presents works by eleven artists that consider alternative economies of labor, love, power, crossings and collectivity. Exhibiting queer relationships to history and a healthy disrespect for master narratives these artists work through the precariousness of legitimacy. The projects displayed offer a telling that bridges reportage and creative proposition. Portraiture, consciousness raising, incitement, and insertion – poetic and effectual strategies that all come to bear on the stability and functionality of institutions. Each work a stone thrown. Illegitimate and Herstorical.
Opening Reception: Thursday, January 5th 6 to 9pm.
Closing Reception with Emily Roysdon: Saturday, January 28th from 4 to 6pm, including a Performance by A Feminist Tea Party: 2 to 4:45pm.
Performance: Equipment Lending by Reena Katz: Friday – Sunday from 12 to 4pm throughout the exhibition and during both receptions.
