“Embodied & Endangered” at Alliance Contemporary
Co-curated by Sal Campbell and Rose Rita Walsh James, “Embodied & Endangered” examines the ongoing plight and cyclical kinship of women and the Earth—exploring the connections between the oppression of women and humanity’s detachment from and domination of the natural world.
“‘Embodied & Endangered’ occupies and investigates the overlapping space between the Earth and Femme bodies. In this symbiotic space, natural resources are commodified for replicating, reproducing, care taking, and providing, before being made refuse—all while providing a never-ending well of awe and wonder to spectators and supplicants alike.” —Rose Rita Walsh James
Featuring works by Keelin Mayer, Annie Novotny, Rose Rita Walsh James, Carla Winterbottom, Robin Power, Ashley January, Chiara No, Dawn Liddicoatt, Tiffany Soo, Susannah Papish. With a performance by choreographer Muffie Delgado Connelly and a reading by Keli Smith, poet and author of “Small Altars.”
Musical guest: DJ Dreea
20% of all sales proceeds will go to EverThrive Illinois, an organization dedicated to eliminating racial and economic disparities in health and healthcare for women, children and families.
The Beverly Area Arts Alliance also supports “Invisible Labors”, a new artist publication that will honor the little-known contributions of Chicago’s early women agricultural and cultural workers in Beverly/Morgan Park. This publication has been inspired by a recent research and garden project created by Susannah Papish, artist and owner of Boundary and artist Melissa H. Potter for the Terrain Biennial 2021.
