ABOUT THE EVENT 

This is the Knoxville sister of the Nasty Women exhibition launched in New York. It is one of many national exhibitions organized to demonstrate solidarity among female artists and allies who identify with being a Nasty Woman in the face of threats to roll back women’s rights, individual rights, women's healthcare rights, immigration rights, racial and environmental justice. It also serves as a fundraiser to support organizations defending these rights. Check out other Nasty Venues around the world here
