Salonathon: THREE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!!

It seems like only yesterday that we first rearranged the tables and stools at Beauty Bar to create a playing space for brave creators. Unbelievably, that was 156 Mondays ago, and since then we’ve witnessed literally thousands of acts of creative generosity in that space, from tunes to tales to dances to jokes to spectacles we struggle to describe … and we’ve witnessed the growth of a community of supporters that has us both humbled and hungry for more.

PLEEZ COME CELEBRATE. The following list of wondrous ones will launch us into year four:

DARLING SHEAR
FEE LION
THE FLY HONEYS
THE INAPPROPRIATE THEATRE CO. & CRUSH DANCE COLLECTIVE
MAGGIE KUBLEY
MALIC WHITE
MATTHEW SHERBACH
MEDICINE WOMEN
RAUL ALVAREZ
SHELLEY ELAINE GEISZLER

With beats spun & smiles beamed by SWAGUERRILLA!!!

Women Artists Visibility Event: The Museum of Modern Art opens but not to women artists, NYC on June 14, 1984
Shot by Clarissa Sligh

Despite the increased visibility of women artists by 1984, most were not included in mainstream gallery or museum exhibitions. When the Museum Of Modern Art opened the exhibition the “International Survey of Painting and Sculpture,” with great fan fare, of the 169 artists chosen, all were white and less than 10 percent were women.

Women artists were incensed. The Women’s Caucus for Art and other women’s groups in the area organized to protest the underrepresentation of women artists.

Included in the photographs are Lucy Lippard, May Stevens, Linda Cunningham, Emma Amos, Sabra Moore, Sharon Jaddis, and Alida Walsh. The posters were pasted all over Soho, a vastly different place from the Soho of today.
