ETERNAL RETURNS

This exhibition is about living with history in the here and now and the distillations we carry into the future. These artists are meticulous researchers, utilizing chemistry, botany, math, religion, politics, and bureaucracy. They explore possibilities, capture turmoil and fallow periods, track displacement and migrations.

QUEER THREADS

“Queer Threads is not just an exploration of fiber art and crafts, but also a celebration of the creativity, diversity, and vibrancy of contemporary queer culture.”

X-TRA cover story on Alien She

“We are hungry for the kind of nuanced history of feminism that Alien She proposes… The exhibition situates riot grrrl as one touchstone in the multi-stream evolution of the radical personal and political communities that artists continue to build today.”

Bitch Magazine review of Alien She

“Throughout Alien She, there is a spirit of resistance, one in which we can all join. Curators Suparak and Moss have pulled together a show that unravels the depiction of riot grrrl as a solely music genre. They have turned it into a living, historic archive—and it’s pretty impressive… Alien She demonstrates the fluidity of the movement and its resonance in the contemporary digital world today.”

SF Chronicle review of Alien She

“This complex exhibition, one of the best this year, explores the Riot Grrrl feminist movement…, some of the key artists it spawned and the technological arc of 20-plus years of radical artworks.”

Art Papers review of Alien She

“Through this broad focus on community, channeled and multiplied through a diversity of accessible communicative media, Alien She asserts that Riot Grrrl’s power is very much in the present.”

Pitt News review of Alien She

“Alien She captures the irrepressible legacy of riot grrrl and avoids reverting to a nostalgic reflection on better days. Instead, it uses the movement as a platform from which a new generation can explore the feminist and queer issues”
