UPTOWN! nasty women and bad hombres
El Museo del Barrio
June 14 to November 5, 2017

As part of its participation in The Wallach Art Gallery at Columbia University’s first Uptowntriennial, El Museo del Barrio presents an exhibition of artists living or working in Northern Manhattan. El Museo’s UPTOWN: nasty women/bad hombres presents the work of artists engaging with the legacies of sexism, racism, homophobia, the power of the media, the state of our natural environment, and violence in various ways. The artists explore these through poetry, symbolism, and metaphor or by exploring particular forms of artistic practice associated with rupture or bearing witness as a form of social protest. Some employ gendered or radical forms of art making for their purposes. Collage, documentary photography, poetic text, painting, needlepoint, textile work and animation are all methods enlisted by these artists to create works that deal with various social issues.
