Castration Squad, a group of paintings I just completed for Coagula Curatorial's “Heads Will Roll” group art exhibition, curated by Kelly Thompson, opening on August 2nd in Chinatown.
Alice Bag: ”When I considered the title of the show I thought of phallic heads, patriarchal symbols and figure heads. Heads Will Roll brought to mind a punk band I used to play with in the early eighties called Castration Squad. The titular castration was never aimed at men, it was aimed at male privilege and gender inequality, it was aimed at infiltrating male dominated spaces and doing it with the irreverence and creativity of punk rock. My paintings focus on the women of Castration Squad who will always be my sisters and who continue to be audacious in their personal and professional lives.”http://coagulacuratorial.com/html/heads-will-roll.htmlClockwise from bottom left: Shannon Wilhelm, Mary Bat Thing (aka Dinah Cancer), Alice Bag, Elissa Bello, Tiffany Kennedy, Tracy Lea (bottom center).
