NO VOICE HUSH’D
BIANNUAL WOMXN ART PUNK FEST
According to recent studies, female-identified artists represent about a third of all gallery-represented ones globally; in the songwriting world this number goes down to a little more than a tenth. In the NYC rock/punk scene in particular, female-identifying musicians must fight several orders of magnitude harder than their male peers for their voices to be heard. We still must endure a system that values men over women. Once any kind of discrimination is both accepted and acceptable, every other form of oppression– racial, class, colour, creed, sexuality–gets a free pass.
No Voice Hush’d is my representation to rectify this, starting here in NYC through the uniting of female-identified artists from all cultural backgrounds and across disciplines. I want to empower female-identifying individuals to stand up to patriarchy and its values and priorities.
Art videos, paintings, installations and more share a literal and figurative stage with the performers and poets performing that night, their works united by their creation from a non-male perspective.
No Voice Hush’d focuses on the artistic power of this group, providing for them a platform of support and a spotlight for their work.
Reflecting upon current political circumstances, all proceeds from ticket sales go to a specific non-for profit organization fighting for a specific cause. Last event, all the ticket sales went toward the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) to support the fight against abortion restriction.
We collaborate with local communities to advance the awareness, equality, diversity, heritage, and recognition of female-identifying artists and expand our audience.
