This month we debut our Curated Collection titled WOMEN RISE, featuring artist books at 23 Sandy Gallery that celebrate women and girls, or shed light on important women’s issues. As we start this New Year, women’s issues are first and foremost on a lot of minds.
This online collection of unique and limited-edition artist books is a special way to tell the stories of women, to celebrate our accomplishments, and to frame a dialog about many important topics. Once again we use books to highlight the power of artists to change the world.
THE DEAD FEMINISTS
Since beginning their Dead Feminists series of broadsides in 2008, collaborators Chandler O’Leary and Jessica Spring have featured 24 different women from history, connecting their words and stories to current social and political issues. The newest chapter in the series is the publication of Dead Feminists: Historical Heroines in Living Color published by Sasquatch. This recent exhibition looked into the process of creating both the prints and the book, from original drawings and ephemera to the latest print in the series that was revealed concurrently with the book release.
