Girly Show: Pin-ups, Zines & the So-Called Third Wave
Monday, October 22 - Friday, November 30, 2007
Artists’ Talk and Reception: Tuesday, October 23, 2007, 6-9pm

Chaffey College and the Wignall Museum are pleased to present Girly Show: Pin-ups, Zines & the So-Called Third Wave. Arriving on the heels of major museum surveys of feminist art, Girly Show: Pin-ups, Zines & the So-Called Third Wave extends the discourse through an investigation of recent works that linger in a reconsideration of one of feminism’s most hotly debated issues, that of the sexualized and insistently empowered body, (a.k.a. the pin-up) and its potential role in gender empowerment and self-determination. Featuring works in an array of media by emerging, mid-career and established artists who utilize strategies that are evocative of zines, these artists appropriate debated gender representations and the histories of their media, and the use of personal content as a vehicle for commanding the representation of gender and themselves. Girly Show reveals contemporary feminism to be an ever evolving, critically complex, and incredibly spirited artistic movement that refuses a tidy definition.

Girly Show: Pin-ups, Zines & the So-Called Third Wave features work by Nicole Cawlfield, Monica Cook, Zackary Drucker, Wanda Ewing, Lauren Gibbes, Peregrine Honig, Ellina Kevorkian, Liza Lou, Elana Mann, Elizabeth Perez, Kathleen Rogan, Dee Williams and Millie Wilson.

Girly Show: Pin-ups, Zines & the So-Called Third Wave opens Monday, October 22 and runs through Friday, November 30, 2007. An artist’s talk featuring Zackary Drucker, Elana Mann, Kathleen Rogan, Dee Williams and Millie Wilson will be held on Tuesday October 23, from 6:00-7:00 p.m. at the Wignall Museum, immediately followed by an artists’ reception at the Wignall Museum from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.
