This is a past event.

Prompts: Next Steps 

When: Sat., Jan. 28, 7 p.m. 2017
Price: $5 suggested donation

The group exhibition Nasty Women, started in New York City by Roxanne Jackson and Jessamyn Fiore, has a companion show at the Carrack this week. It's a timely effort 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, LGBTQ+ rights, and immigrant rights." The Carrack put out an all-inclusive call for works by any artist along these lines who was ready to donate the proceeds of sales to Planned Parenthood. The exhibit runs alongside the gallery's annual community show, adding to the populist punch. Your last chance to go is Saturday night, when a performance event complements the exhibit's inauguration anxiety perfectly. Choreographer Justin Tornow's lively PROMPTS series, in which a variety of artists respond to an open call for ten-minute performances built around a prompt, returns, asking what our "next steps" might be. —Brian Howe
