Fifty-two artists speak out against misogyny in the provocatively titled exhibition F*ck U! In the Most Loving Way at the Arc Gallery in San Francisco. Scheduled on the heels of a contentious Presidential election, the exhibition examines in raw detail how the artists react to patriarchy and shines a spotlight on women’s identities and embodied experiences.

 

Represented are national artists selected by Shannon Rose Riley, M.F.A. and Ph.D., Associate Professor and Chair of Humanities, San José State University and featured artists invited by Tanya Augsburg, PhD, Associate Professor of Humanities and Liberal Studies, San Francisco State University. These include groundbreaking artists such as Faith Wilding, Johanna Demetrakas, Karen LeCocq and Nancy Youdelman from the beginning of the feminist art movement in the early 1970s and internationally known contemporary artists Emma Sulkowicz, Violet Overn, Ester Hernandez, Rokudenashiko and Sheila Pree Bright.
