The EVERY WOMAN BIENNIAL 2019 is the all woman and non-binary art biennial founded and curated by C. Finley. What began as the Whitney Houston Biennial, a wild one night event of art and performance celebrating women in 2014, and expanded to a two-week exhibition in 2017 in the awakening of the #MeToo movement, will present its third iteration, titled Every Woman Biennial, from May 19 - May 29 in New York, and a sister biennial of LA-based artists June 2 - 12 in Los Angeles.
Over 600 artists are featured in the art exhibitions, a NY film festival, and events including I WANNA DANCE WITH SOMEBODY Flash Mob in NY, and Girl Bands in LA. The Biennial includes acclaimed artists dedicated to supporting women - Patricia Cronin, Deborah Kass, Marilyn Minter, Annie Sprinkle & Elizabeth Stevens, Swoon, Mickalene Thomas, Betty Tompkins and more - showing alongside emerging artists and artists from partnerships with Bard College, GenderCool Project, LAND Studio, Lower East Side Girls’ Club, and more. See a full list of artists on www.everywomanbiennial.com
The goal is to develop a heightened consciousness in the art world favoring encouragement, connection, inspiration and love. Every Woman Biennial is our rallying cry which aims to bring together many creative voices to sing a collective song that celebrates the contribution of female artists and marks a moment in our communal trajectory.
Timing with The Whitney Museum’s Biennial, the aim is to extend the celebration of art and create even more opportunities for emerging women artists. The Biennial engages artists, through a democratic open call, to cross-pollinate with each other from a variety of mediums, generations, and racial and ethnic backgrounds. The salon-style exhibition features painting, photography, installation, sculpture, video art, textile, and multimedia works, activated by performance, dance, music, poetry readings, theater and film.
Press for Every Woman Biennial
"Like so many good ideas, the Every Woman Biennial was born of a joke. Now it’s in its third edition, displaying the work of over 600 female and nonbinary artists, and expanding to Los Angeles."
