Throughout time and across all cultures women have held the role of prophet, oracle, seer, and diviner. Their stories warned us where our society was heading. In exchange for their wisdom they have been banned and burned, but also revered and channeled. She never stopped speaking and we never stopped listening.  Sometimes it is a whisper and sometimes it is a shout.

The Exhibition “What She Said” includes 2D, 3D, and performance art, as well as free public programming. The show places focus on feminist strategies that address our current dystopian reality. “What She Said,” starts with the premise that extreme circumstances create fertile ground for visionary speculation. Many of the artists in the show address direct relationships between the vessel of the body as a channel for divinity, trauma, transmutation, birth and death. The artwork in the show addresses the way an oracular vision speaks to society today in a digital culture, integrating gazes, voices, and experiences.

“What She Said” features work by Lili Bernard, Annie Buckley, Cherie Benner Davis,Carolyn ño, Nancy Evans, Scarlett Kim and Maya Mackrandilal, Marne Lucas aka CuntemporaryArtist, Silvi Naçi, Mary Anna Pomonis, Cintia Segovia, Allison Stewart, Emily Sudd, Camilla Taylor, Paula Wilson, Jessica Wimbley, Michiko Yao, Caroline Yoo, and Dajin Yoon

The Association of Hysteric Curators (AHC) envelops a fluid, evolving, trans-generational group of feminists who seek to explore notions of female protest and the presence of gendered articulations through a non-hierarchical structure based in dialogue and exchange. As we honor the lineage of feminist models, we dare to envision a future of human equality, knowing we must interrogate the customs of today in order to enable conditions for change. As an agent of chaos and change, we posit our curatorial agenda as a figurative fault line; our research a body of water formed in a valley between two plates; our legacy the large-scale lateral movement along hundreds of miles of the fault: watch us as we spread and break down barriers, expanding and amplifying our space in society.
