Museum of Contemporary Craft says
Join us for the opening of our upcoming exhibition, Alien She, on September's First Thursday in the Pearl. The exhibition and opening event will take place at both Museum of Contemporary Craft and the 511 Gallery at Pacific Northwest College of Art (only three blocks apart).

September 3, 2015

Museum of Contemporary Craft

511 Gallery at Pacific Northwest College of Art
511 NW Broadway (entrance at NW 8th Ave and NW Glisan St)

Access to both venues is free and open to the public.

Alien She, curated by Astria Suparak and Ceci Moss, is the first exhibition to examine the lasting impact of Riot Grrrl on artists and cultural producers working today. A pioneering punk feminist movement that emerged in the early 1990s, Riot Grrrl has had a pivotal influence, inspiring many around the world to pursue socially and politically progressive careers as artists, activists, authors and educators. Emphasizing female and youth empowerment, collaborative organization, creative resistance and DIY ethics, Riot Grrrl helped a new generation to become active feminists and create their own culture and communities that reflect their values and experiences, in contrast to mainstream conventions and expectations.
