Co curated by Neysa Page-Lieberman and Melissa Hilliard Potter.
Revolution at Point Zero is the first exhibition of its kind to position the feminist art as the progenitor of contemporary socially-engaged art. The exhibition is 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 features women-identified, North American artists whose work focuses on radical acts of the personal and political. Selected works include: Laura Andrson Barbata's Julia Pastrana: A Homecoming, including the gender-subverting, history re-envisioning burlesque performance with Fem Appeal; Marisa Jahn's The Careforce, with a public performance choreographed and performed by activitsts of the domestic labor movementl Las Nietas de Nono's Ilustraciones de la Mecánica, participatory theatre of untold narratives about reproductive health in Puerto Rico, 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; and a featured recent work entitled Snow Workers' Ballet by Mierle Laderman Ukeles, one of the pioneers of the social practice movement.
