About the exhibition:
F213 is short for Fahrenheit 213, one degree above the boiling point of blood. This exhibition brings together nearly 100 national and Bay Area feminist artists and writers who are incensed about what is currently happening in the United States.
F213 spotlights strong and bold artistic expressions of feminist protest. While we remain hopeful, we reject "thoughts and prayers" as adequate responses to state-sanctioned cruelty, sexism, racism, white supremacy, sex crimes, undoing of women's reproductive choice, LBGTIA discrimination, Islamophobia, police brutality, gun violence, environmental assault, unlawful detention, and more.
This exhibition was curated by the NCWCA Curatorial Collective: Tanya Augsburg, lead curator; Karen Gutfreund, Priscilla Otani and Sawyer Rose, co-curators; and Ariana Davi, curatorial apprentice.
