ABOUT F213: A NCWCA CURATORIAL EXHIBITION
Artists provide the imagery.
Together our voices will be heard.
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 corruption, demagoguery, state-sanctioned cruelty, social injustice, sexism, racism, white supremacy, sex crimes, relentless undoing of women’s reproductive choice, LBGTIA discrimination, Islamophobia, police brutality, gun violence, environmental assault, unlawful detention, and more. F213 calibrates the boiling points of our outrage against the flagrant disregard of human rights, let alone the destruction of civil liberties, civil rights, and hard-won protections.
F213 brings together a diverse and inclusive mix of multicultural, intersectional, multigenerational feminist artists and writers to not only express their concerns, but to offer insights to all those interested in remedying current injustices and atrocities.
