For those of you who are out of state or overseas we hope you may be interested in organizing & curating your own NASTY WOMEN exhibition.

We want NASTY WOMEN exhibitions to spread and thus would love it if you took what we are doing and change/adapt it to best suit your locality.

We only ask that you stick to two main points:

  1. Please be mindful to reach out to and include a diverse group of female identifying artists.
  2. The exhibition is fundraiser to raise money to support an organization of your choice that is supporting women’s rights (it could be national or local – your choice).

We would love it if you use the title NASTY WOMEN and we will be linked on our Website www.nastywomenexhibition.org which is being designed by Barbara Smith. Please also create a Facebook event page, and we will add you to our Facebook page. Also we will work with you on setting up the submission process, etc and be available for guidance, brainstorming, etc. We have a graphics drive with a unique color for your event, if you’d like to use it. Please request the graphics folder when you email us: Nastywomenexhibition@gmail.com

It would be wonderful if we could try to time the exhibitions to happen around the same time – January 2017 – but obviously there is flexibility depending on your venue, schedule, etc

Also we are designing our show around hanging the work off giant letters that spell at NASTY WOMEN. If you want to do this –or maybe just one letter or word we will happily share the schematics. Or you should do your own thing completely!!!! Whatever you think works best for your artists, region, venue, and audience.

So contact us if you are interested!
