I was honored to be invited to participate in Nasty Woman Amsterdam in March at Josilda Da Conceicao Gallery in Amsterdam. This exhibition is an outgrowth of the original Nasty Woman exhibition in the Knockdown Center in Queens, NY. Since then there have been 30 sister shows and counting around the globe that have raised over $181.000 for women's rights and social issues. I created a poster based on a painting of my grandmother who perhaps was an original Nasty Woman. Just to review, "Nasty Woman" became a rallying call to woman, an unintended consequence to a thoughtless, misogynistic and disrespectful comment made during a Presidential Debate by Donald Trump.
From Emma Gray of the Huffington Post:
During the final moments of the third and final presidential debate, Donald Trump interrupted Clinton as she was answering a question about social security. “Such a nasty woman,” he muttered into his microphone. Women all over the world have reclaimed a word meant to insult. Happy to have participated in this show.
Exhibition runs March 4 – 12, 2017
