News: Nasty Women Dublin announce results of fundraising exhibition

Nasty Women Dublin & Pallas Projects are pleased to announce that over €6000 was raised through the sale of art works at the Nasty Women Dublin exhibition in August 2107, which was held in support of The Artist Campaign to Repeal the 8th Amendment and The Coalition to Repeal the 8th Amendment. The Dublin project was initiated by the artist-run space Pallas Projects/Studios, and was co-ordinated by artist Eve Woods. Artists were selected by leading Irish artists and curators including Sheena Barrett, Helen Carey, Mary Cremin Jessamyn Fiore, Siobhan Geoghegan, Gillian Lawler, Loitering Theatre, Alice Maher and Kathy Tynan. In total 70 out of the 90 works kindly donated by the artists for the exhibition were sold, and the exhibition and its events attracted huge numbers and interest in the Nasty Women cause.

Originally a project by curators Jessamyn Fiore, Roxanne Jackson and Angel Bellaran hosted in the Knockdown Centre, New York it has spread to over 40 fundraising exhibitions worldwide.

“Nasty Women is a global art movement that serves to demonstrate solidarity among artists who identify with being a Nasty Woman in the face of threats to roll back women’s rights, individual rights, and abortion rights. With over forty fundraising art exhibitions taking place around the United States and abroad, Nasty Women Exhibitions also serve to support organisations defending these rights and to be a platform for organisation and resistance.”

We would like to thank The Hunreal Issues, Eve Djs, Against The Grain and Telephones for their help in making our events and overall project a success.

We are very grateful to all the artists and selectors for their donations and suggestions. We would like to give a special thanks to Margareta D’Arcy who performed ‘I am a Killer They Say’ on our opening night, Leann Herlihy who performed ‘A Glove is a Gift’ on our closing day, Catherine Barron who was very generous in hosting her workshop FINDING CREATIVITY, and artist Katie Holten, who used the font she created for the original exhibition in New York to make the work ‘Kisses for Repeal’, specially for Nasty Women Dublin.

A special thanks to Aggie Veale who designed the Nasty Women Dublin logo, Chlöe Nagle & Marina Pontin for their help in organising and building the Nasty Women Wall.
