ANOHNI: FUTURE FEMINISM Presented by Aarhus 2017
"The subjugation of women and the earth is one and the same."
In 2014 a collective of five artists in NYC mounted an exhibition and 13 day performance festival at Hole Gallery in NYC. Having spent 3 years developing their ideas in retreat, Anohni, Kembra Pfahler, Johanna Constantine, Bianca Casady and Sierra Casady emerged with "13 Tenets of Future Feminism." Drawing from ancient concepts, feminist thought and most pressingly, an urgent sense of the eco-collapse that is unfolding before us, the directives of FUTURE FEMINISM are a provocation that, at their core, call for the reconstitution of a feminine collective consciousness, which if radically empowered, might be strong enough to reorganize our behaviors as a species and save what remains of our world. Since its first staging, aspects of the text from FUTURE FEMINISM have been widely borrowed from and taken into popular culture, most dramatically, Tenet #13: "The future is female", a statement that was repeated this year in a speech by Hillary Clinton. However, it is only in context of the full constellation of "13 Tenets of Future Feminism" that the radical prescription for change at the heart of this landmark feminist work can be accurately assessed.
For Aarhus 2017, three of the artists will restage the exhibition, comprised of 13 megalithic works. A series of talks, workshops and events hosted by the artists will transpire during the course of the exhibit.
”Anohni – artist in residence” is supported by British Council
