 ​The goal of this exhibition F*ck U! In the Most Loving Way is to revisit the critiques of women’s relational roles presented in the 1972 landmark feminist Womanhouse exhibition by showing works that address women’s ongoing challenges to build their lives and thrive within structural and intersectional systems of oppression.

 Nasty Women is a response to this divisive time in media, politics, and history. The sexist overtone that has loomed over our country this past year throughout our presidential campaign has called many women to action through various forms of outrage and dissent. Nasty Women is a culmination of our collective fears, anger, frustration, determination, and strength to both process our new political climate, as well as to face it head on. Nasty Women examines our “new normal” and how that relates to our identity and culture.
