Saturday, June 28, 6-10pm
Each last Saturday of the month is Artwalk night in Fort Lauderdale! Join us for an evening of open studios, pop-up galleries and receptions in downtown Fort Lauderdale’s Flagler Village and FATVillage areas.
Girls’ Club joins the festivities this month with late hours, a special screening of our ongoing web project with Vanessa Garcia‘s 12 Women Out of the Box and Out on a Limb and light refreshments.
The 12 Women Out of the Box & Out on a Limb project is a video interview series highlighting 12 inspiring local professionals and sharing a glimpse into their unique world perspectives. The series is inspired by Garcia’s opposition to recent feminist set backs she’s perceived that counter the progress made by years of feminist and women’s rights activists. Garcia comments that some recent publications “tell women to ‘lean into’ men and the sectors of the world run by them in order to only then, perhaps, maybe, have a chance at change. This seems the wrong way to go about it, and adverse to all the work done by women in the past.”
See for yourself how these 12 women are thinking out of the box, stepping out on a limb and challenging the status quo as we screen all 12 videos in the Girls’ Club Annex Space. Screening will be played throughout the evening.
Currently on view at Girls’ Club: I think it’s in my head, curated by TM Sisters. The exhibition features works in a variety of media, chosen for their vivid metaphysics: transforming figures, metamorphosis, supernatural mysteries, telepathic communication, explosions of psychic power. WOrks from leading national and international artists as well as prominent local artists on view.
