Calling All Nasty Women Artists

The Phoenix Nasty Women exhibition and benefit for Planned Parenthood is part of a larger network of Nasty Women Exhibitions happening nationally and internationally scheduled around the January 20th inauguration of Donald Trump.   Sister events are happing in New York City, Nashville, TN, Lubbock, TX, Minneapolis, MN, Lexington, KY, Minneapolis, MN, San Diego, CA, Asheville, NC, Leverette, MA, Melbourne, Australia, Brussels, Belgium and other places. Calling all Nasty Women: we are transforming Trump’s insult of Hilary Clinton into a badge of courage and strength. Together we can demonstrate solidarity among artists who identify as Nasty Woman in the face of threats to roll back women’s rights, individual rights, LGBTQ+ rights, and immigrant rights. We hope to build a platform for community and coalition building to push back against the Trump White House. SECOND ROUND SUBMISSIONS DEADLINE: form due January 19 at 5pm. All submissions that follow our guidelines (see submissions page) will be accepted. Work must be dropped off at Grand ArtHaus on Thursday January 19 noon-8pm.

 The Nasty Women exhibition and benefit project was started by Roxanne Jackson and Jessamyn Fiore in NYC with a Facebook post in October 2016 that read: “Hello female artists/curators! Let’s organize a NASTY WOMEN group show!!! Who’s interested???“ The massive response has taken this call to arms into building an ever-expanding network of Nasty Women Artists & Art Organizers that will culminate in multiple exhibitions, all connected at the website We welcome anyone who identifies with being a Nasty Woman and want this exhibition to include a spectacular diverse rainbow of Nasty Women so please please please spread the word!
