The Pervasive Curse

The Pervasive Curse

March 4 – 22

Opening reception and artist performance: Monday, March 4 from 5-7 pm

Spooky Boobs Collective is an artist collaborative from Madison, Wisconsin consisting of three artists: Amy Cannestra, Myszka Lewis, and Maggie Snyder.

SPOOKY BOOBS COLLECTIVE uses art, language, and design to visualize the trivialization of women’s experiences. SBC produces public artworks with the mission to halt the perpetuation of sexism in our culture. Situating themselves within the history of women’s arts activism, SBC draws attention to prevalent language that continues to foster resentment and disrespect towards women, initiate community interaction to support the sharing of experiences, and instigate progress towards the eradication of misogynist language from our collective vocabulary.

SBC’s work is manifested through installations, performances, printed material, social media campaigns, and social interactions.  Since SBC’s formation in 2014, they have mounted three solo exhibitions and have participated in several group exhibitions nationally. In 2016, SBC received a People’s Choice Award for their work included in “I Witness: Activist Art and Social Movement Politics” at the Heuser Art Center Gallery in Peoria, IL, and a special recognition award presented by Michelle Nye of SFMOMA Artist’s Gallery for their work included in “Vision: An Artist’s Perspective” at Kaleid Gallery in San Jose, CA.
