184 Nasty Women artists m/f from 27 countries, 240 artworks from € 1 – € 200. During the exhibition and auction €16.000 ($17,000) was raised. This is the Amsterdam sister of Nasty Women NYC, a group exhibition that serves to demonstrate solidarity among artists who identify with being a Nasty Woman in the face of threats to roll back women’s rights, individual rights, and abortion rights. It also served as a fundraiser to support Women on Waves, COC Amsterdam and She Decides.
Nasty Women NYC was started by Roxanne Jackson and Jessamyn Fiore with a Facebook post that read:
Hello female artists/curators! Lets organize a NASTY WOMEN group show!!! Who’s interested???
The massive response has taken this call to arms into an ever expanding network of Nasty Women Artists & Art Organizers all around the world. See Other Nasty Venues.
In the Netherlands we experience more intolerance and populism. Just before the elections we want to show our solidarity with women’s rights, LGBTQ, individual rights. This exhibition is a fundraiser, all sales will go to charity: Women on Waves, COC Amsterdam & Shedecides.eu
