i am not a good enough feminist is an exhibition and publication that seeks to investigate feminism as a historically situated moment and the possibilities and necessities of its contemporary manifestations. Though organized by and stemming from an artistic mission, this project invites not only artists, writers, and other individuals from other artistic practices, but also an interdisciplinary group of activists and intellectuals to contemplate their experiences with, preconceptions of, and convictions surrounding feminism.

Inherent to this project is an investigation of resistance to the word and concept of feminism, perhaps manifesting in a new vocabulary with shared aims.

The project has a dual source and search. On the one hand, we contemplate anxiety surrounding feminism’s legacy, the hypothetical realization of our forbears’ goals, the danger of nullifying progress by inadequate engagement with the term. On the other hand, we perceive disbelief from within our generation and without, over the relevance of whatever we could do. Through both these lenses, we hope to recognize, articulate, commiserate, and organize surrounding the paralysis of moving feminism forward.
