Gallery Josilda da Conceição and visual artist Airco Caravan decided to organize the Nasty Woman Amsterdam – Fundraiser Art Exhibition. On show from March 4-12. More than 220 nasty women artists from 27 countries submitted more than 300 artworks. The curators selected 240 artworks that will be sold from 1 to 200 euros. Col-lec-tion by Virtual Shoe Museum is also part of this event, amongst well known artists like Tinkebell, Barbara Broekman, Guerrilla Girls, Simone van Saarloos and Sarah Maple.
ANTI-TRUMP ART BECOMES A WORLDWIDE MOVEMENT
Amsterdam is one of the 45 locations where Nasty Women Art Exhibition will be held. New York was the city where this anti-Trump art protest started. Soon other cities followed. Nasty Women is a global art movement that serves to demonstrate solidarity among artists who identify with being a Nasty Woman in the face of threats to roll back women’s rights, individual rights, and abortion rights. With over forty fundraising art exhibitions taking place around the United States and abroad, Nasty Women Exhibitions also serve to support organizations defending these rights and to be a platform for organization and resistance. Amsterdam, known as a tolerant, free, and gay friendly city, had to act. Soon there will be elections in the Netherlands and we are worried about growing populism, discrimination and misogyny too. So gallery owner Josilda da Conceição and visual artist Airco Caravan decided to organize the Amsterdam sister show.
ARTISTIC STATEMENT FOR WOMEN’S RIGHTS & LGBTQ
Nasty Women NYC was started by Roxanne Jackson and Jessamyn Fiore with a Facebook post that read: Hello female artists/curators! Lets organize a NASTY WOMEN group show!!! Who’s interested??? The massive response has taken this call to arms into an ever expanding network of Nasty Women Artists & Art Organizers all around the world. The New York exhibition raised $45.000 for Planned Parenthood with the sale of almost 1.000 artworks by 700 artsists.
In the Netherlands we experience more intolerance and populism. Just before the elections we want to show our solidarity with women’s rights, LGBTQ, individual rights.
This exhibition is a fundraiser
100% of sales will go to charity: Women on Waves, COC Amsterdam & Shedecides.eu
The sister shows are being held from San Francisco to London and from Melbourne to St. Petersburg.
