Pratt Manhattan Gallery presents Feminism Is Politics!, an exhibition-inquiry into what is conceptualized by feminists and queer/lesbians in the 21st century as New Feminism. It features video, performance works and art activist projects that address the feminist position in action and redefine the notion of “political” within the new millennium’s paradigm of uncertainty and precarity. Feminism Is Politics! is curated by New York-based curator and art critic Olga Kopenkina.

Exhibited artists include Pauline Boudry/Renate Lorenz, Bureau of Melodramatic Research, Melanie Cervantes, Regina José Galindo, Gluklya (Natalia Pershina-Yakimanskaya), Victoria Lomasko, Liza Morozova, Mujeres Públicas, Tanja Ostojić, YES! Association / Föreningen JA! and Anna Zvyagintseva.

The exhibition is sponsored in part by the Republic of Serbia Ministry of Culture, the Berlin Senate Chancellery – Cultural Affairs Department, and the Swedish Arts Grants Committee’s International Programme for Visual and Applied Artists.

Feminism Is Politics! continues at the Pratt Manhattan Gallery (144 West 14th Street, Second Floor, New York, NY) through November 23, 2016. The gallery is open Monday-Saturday, 11am-6pm, and Thursday until 8pm. Free and open to the public.
