Revolution at Point Zero
March 10 - April 24, 2017
Glass Curtain Gallery
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:
Marisa Jahn's The Careforce
Las Nietas de Nono's Ilustraciones de la Mecánica: performed by the duo activists of the domestic labor movement in Puerto Rico as participatory theatre of untold narratives about reproductive health there.
Mierle Laderman Ukeles’s Snow Workers' Ballet (one of the pioneers of the social practice movement).
