Post-Patriarchal Feminism: Visions of Optimism & Illusion is a collaborative art show that asks: what is the future of Feminism? One in which the previous feminist counter culture has claimed the majority of public opinion and therefore, ignorant and uninformed is the new counter culture? One in which yesterday’s promises have manifested themselves and we have societally transcended gender?

As we envision the pendulum of cyclical theory pushing us forward, it can feel like a personal daily roller coaster ride. At the apex, the thrilling anticipation of progress we can feel rumbling underground just before plummeting into turbulent feverish bitterness. We invite you along on this ride and explore, “why is that lady so angry?”
