*Uprise, "The Angry Woman Exhibition", The Untitled Gallery Trebeca NYC. Curated by Indira Cesarine
The 2016 election has brought to the surface extremes of sexism, racism and discrimination. A dark cloud looms over those who respect ideals of equal rights, human dignity and humanitarianism. A resounding number of people are feeling a heavy weight of anxiety and sadness as well as a newfound sense of urgency and determination to be more involved and socially aware. Artists are encouraged to empower themselves and others with works for the “Angry Women” exhibit that respond to the political and social climate as well as explore themes revolving around feminism today and female empowerment.

Nasty Women, The Knock Down Center, Queens NYC
This is a group exhibition 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. It also serves as a fundraiser to support organizations defending these rights and to be a platform for organization before the Trump Presidential Inauguration in January

*F*CK YOU In The Most Loving Way, Arc Gallery San Francisco, CA.  Juror Shannon Rose Riley. This exhibition revisits the critiques of women’s relational gender roles presented in the 1972 landmark feminist Womanhouse exhibition.  At a time when rude and crude discourse seems to be increasingly the norm, this exhibition explores how self-identified women are choosing to express their discontent with prescribed and outdated binary gender roles.
