OBJECT ACTION: THE 'F' WORD IN A POST-TRUTH ERA Opening Reception to Collect For Change InaugurationObject Action: The "F" Word in a Post-Truth Era marks the inauguration of Collect For Change-an initiative which collaborates with artists across disciplines, offering artwork with a portion of sales benefiting a charity personally selected by each artist. As a feminist response to the one-year anniversary of the current administration, the group exhibition highlights "objects" and works by female artists "objecting" to a dominant paradigm through innovative media in the feminist realm.

Featured artists Ana Teresa Fernández, Chitra Ganesh, Michelle Hartney, Angela Hennessy, Nadja Verena Marcin, Sanaz Mazinani, and Michele Pred will donate a portion of all artwork sales to Art & Abolition, The Center For Popular Democracy's Puerto Rico Rebuilding Fund, Girls Garage, Girls Inc., NARAL Pro-Choice California, Planned Parenthood, and 350.org.

Curated by Amy Kisch, Founder + CEO of AKArt and Collect For Change; Danielle Smith and Kimberly Verde, Founders of state and Principals of FRAMEWORK; and Heather Zises, Founder of (READ)art and Author of 50 Contemporary Women Artists (forthcoming in 2018), the show is accompanied by a Community Action Station highlighting benefitting organizations and others doing work on the feminist front, a Pop-Up Shop, and public programming-including a march on Sunday, January 21 at 12pm, from state to Pacific Felt Factory, where a satellite exhibition exploring feminist perspectives will be held.

The accompanying Pop-Up Shop of zines, editions, gear, and publications, includes Sadie Barnette, Deborah Castillo, Serena Cole, Kelly Inouye, Katrina Majkut, Piyali Banerjie's The Sacred Labyrinth, a curatorial selection by Aimee Rubensteen [of Rojas + Rubensteen Projects] of works by Phoebe Rose Gittelson, Meirav Ong, and Monica Uszerowicz, Diana Kane's Feminist Gold clothing line, The Nouveau Classical Project's #fffp tees, Allie Pohl's Ideal Woman jewelry, and publications from Torz Dallison + Aliza Edelman, Vanessa Grigoriadis, Beth Pickens, Fjords, and BITCH Magazine, among others.
