Revolution at Point Zero

March 10 - April 24, 2017
Glass Curtain Gallery
Chicago, IL

Revolution at Point Zero was the first exhibition of its kind to position the feminist art as the progenitor of contemporary socially-engaged art. Co-curated by Neysa Page-Lieberman and Melissa Potter, the exhibition was inspired by Silvia Federici's book, Revolution at Point Zero: Housework, Reproduction, and Feminist Struggle, and uses her Marxist feminist theory on the invisible labor of women as a framing device for the discourse around the exhibition.

The exhibition featured women-identified, North American artists whose work focuses on radical acts of the personal and political.

Selected works included:

  • Megan Young’s Longest Walk with Angela Davis Fegan: an installation of female identifying bodies in public spaces created in protest of politics as usual.
