Exquisite Acts & Everyday Rebellions:

2007 CalArts Feminist Art Project

collaborative feminist project


Exquisite Acts & Everyday Rebellions was a student-organized project based at California Institute of the Arts that seeks to produce discourse around the questions and contexts of contemporary feminist practice in art and society.  The project encompassed projects and workshops proposed by students from across the schools of CalArts, a curated exhibition of student, faculty, and alumni works addressing feminism, a feminist performance series, and a day-long symposium of panel discussions with guest artists, activists, and curators.
