WE DISSENT… Design of the Women’s Movement in New York considers more than 150 years of feminist artifacts. Showcasing a diversity of printed matter and other materials including engravings, posters, brochures, journals, magazines, T-shirts, buttons, and more that were created by women artists and designers from the 1860s to today, the exhibition includes more than 200 artifacts by women artists rarely seen and shown in order to reconsider the contributions of women to social unity and justice. The exhibition expands our knowledge of the history of women and of the relationship between feminism and political action and reminds us that much of the issues facing women are vestiges from past centuries that remain daily realities.

The exhibition includes work by and from Sisters of the Black Panthers Party, Dyke Action Machine! (DAM!), Jane Dickson, Alice Donlevy, The Feminists, The Feminist Press, fierce pussy, Firebrand, Guerrilla Girls, Heresies, Jenny Holzer, Interference Archive, The Lesbian Herstory Archives, Madame Binh Graphics Collective (MBGC), Ms. Magazine, Su Negrin, New York Radical Women, Redstockings, Red Women’s Detachment, Faith Ringgold, Salsa Soul Sisters, Third World Women’s Alliance, WIRE (Women’s International Resource Exchange), Women’s Action Coalition (WAC), and WITCH (Women International Terrorist Conspiracy from Hell) among others.

Stéphanie Jeanjean, adjunct assistant professor of art history in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at The Cooper Union,and Alexander Tochilovsky, curator of the school’s The Herb Lubalin Study Center of Design and Typography, co-curated the exhibition.
