big mouth

The same week that I got two of Lauren Denitzio's illustrated zines in the post, I also discover she's co-curated the following mind-bogglingly awesome sounding event, set to open in New York on August 9th. She's like wonderwoman, and I have big love for her right now!

BIG MOUTH: contemporary feminist voices in art + illustration


a group show featuring: Suzy Exposito / Molly Fair / Kim Funk / Kathleen Hanna / J. Morrison / Adee Roberson / Gabby Schulz

Curated by Kate Wadkins + Lauren Denitzio, BIG MOUTH: contemporary voices in feminist art + illustration is a platform for unpopular visual opinions. Feminist movements have historically grown out of interventions within radical communities in the face of silence, anger, and often, violence. Still, these conflicts and contentions are fought with the utmost passion and humor in hopes for a radical resolution. BIG MOUTH illustrates the ever-evolving search for feminist/queer identities and communities. This group show places feminist narratives at the center of radical art-making, where often our voices are poorly represented or left out altogether. BIG MOUTH is a celebration of our pluralism, our goofiness, and a proclamation of defiant love.
