Feminists are notorious for not having a sense of humor. With more and more women and specifically vocal Feminist women having success in mainstream comedy(Tina Fey, Lena Dunham), the worlds of academia and activism need to catch up. “How Many Feminists…” will focus on artists who identify as Feminists (and possibly activists) who use comedy as a part of their work. It will take place at Antena Gallery in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago, in August 2013. This show is looking for video and performance work, which is informed by Feminist and Art theory, but is all about the joke. Pieces should be intended to make the viewer laugh.
Open to women who identify themselves as Feminists. Acceptable formats include: video and performance. There is no fee. Email submissions with video links or jpeg attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org
