ABD Photography and Gallery is very pleased to announce its opening debut with Nasty Women: A Group Exhibition. Nasty Women features a diverse group of contemporary female artists, from across the country. Artists, Andrea Brooke D’Alessandro (owner of ABD Photography and Gallery) and Christy E. O’Connor (curator) have teamed up to create an exhibit to give voice to women and to create discourse for both today, and for what is to follow.
Nasty Women is a response to this divisive time in media, politics, and history. The sexist overtone that has loomed over our country this past year throughout our presidential campaign has called many women to action through various forms of outrage and dissent. Nasty Women is a culmination of our collective fears, anger, frustration, determination, and strength to both process our new political climate, as well as to face it head on. Nasty Women examines our “new normal” and how that relates to our identity and culture.
