The Un-heroic Act: Representations of Rape in Contemporary Women’s Art in the U.S. (2018)

In September of 2018, The Shiva Gallery at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice will present, The Un-heroic Act: Representations of Rape in Contemporary Women’s Art in the U.S.  This groundbreaking exhibition is a concentrated survey of works by a diverse roster of artists representing three generations including Jenny Holzer, Suzanne Lacy, Ana Mendieta, Senga Nengudi, Yoko Ono, and Kara Walker.

The Barbara Lee Family Foundation is proud to support this truly inspiring exhibition which aims to fill a void in the history of art.  An exhibition catalog will further engage audiences with this remarkable exhibition.
