A SLUTIST Visual Art Exhibition: WITCH SLUT ARE YOU? Seer, Siren or Sorceress

Continuing from where our sold out Legacy of the Witch Festival left off, Slutist presents “WITCH SLUT ARE YOU? Seer, Siren, or Sorceress” a multi-media exhibition of female (super)power and body politics at Wallplay on 118 Orchard St. in New York City from May 28 – June 3. An opening party will be held on Thursday, May 28th from 7-10pm and feature performance art by Ayana Evans, DJs, drinks, and limited edition Slutist merch.

The epithets “witch” and “slut” have been similarly used to police and destroy female lives, whether through contemporary “slut-shaming” or the extermination of women deemed witches that continues to this day. Reflecting these parallel discourses, “WITCH SLUT ARE YOU?” is a visual representation of the feared archetypes of femininity by which women are constrained. The seer is accused of knowing too much — the eternal “Eve”; the siren is accused of wielding beauty as a weapon; and the sorceress is accused of amassing too much influence and power. This exhibition, curated by Slutist editrix Kristen Korvette, delves into the aesthetics of resistance against these constraining archetypes and exposes how a diverse group of artists embrace feminist power on their own terms as outliers, “others,” and witchy rogues.

Works include paintings, drawings, photographs, video art, and sculpture by artists Azar Swan, Coz Con, Dana Glover, Rebecca Goyette, Karlynn Holland, Metal Mother, Carol-Anne McFarlane, Elena Kanagy-Loux, Purevile, Naomi Elena Ramirez, and Katie Skelly.
