How Many Feminists…?” Screening

“How Many Feminists Does it Take to Change a Light Bulb?” …
….“That’s not funny.”

Friday September 6th, 2013 from 6pm-10pm
show runs until September 28th

“How Many Feminists…” is a collection of comedic work by female video artists and performers who identity themselves as feminists and utilize humor as an important part of their work. This show is put together with the intent of getting the academic art world and activist communities to “catch up” with mainstream entertainment in terms of experimentation and trendsetting a female comedic expression. In addition to showcasing female comedic work, this show intertwines “art” and “entertainment” into one genre by including stand up performers and comedic troupes.

"Little Man Pee Pool Party: The Whiz Paddler's Lament" will consist of at least twenty idiosyncratic versions of Mannekin Pis, the famous "peeing boy" public fountain in Brussels, made by a variety of professional sculptors, artists, and non-artists alike. Each piece will be fully functional and will pee into a series of shared indoor pools. A twenty-six page catalog will accompany the exhibit with contributions by many of Chicago's most dynamic young cartoonists. The exhibit will also include several "surprises".
