“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.”
“By emphasizing the impact of riot grrrl on artists creating radical and subversive work, Alien She does justice to the movement and honors its ethos.”
“We spoke… with co-curators Astria Suparak and Ceci Moss about examining the movement’s legacy, combing through the Riot Grrrl archive, and Miranda July’s app.”
Videos selected from over 140 galleries of The International Exposition of Modern and Contemporary Art.
“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.”
“Alien She curators Astria Suparak and Ceci Moss have exhaustively pulled together a comprehensive exploration into the feminist punk rock movement… The riot grrrl scene runs deep both in terms of the other art it inspired and the ethos and attitude it bred.”
“the exhibition never sinks into nostalgia—rather, its tone channels the unapologetically personal attitude of Riot Grrrl.”
This exhibition provides a view into the passion and diversity of the punk feminist movement Riot Grrrl, and highlights how these ideas have broadened, evolved and mutated in the work of contemporary artists.
