The Week Ahead: Alien She Edition

A roundup of opportunities and goings-on from Rhizome's community.


Opening Friday at the Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon is Alien She, the "first exhibition to examine the lasting impact that Riot Grrrl, a pioneering global punk feminist movement, has had on artists and cultural producers working today." Curated by Astria Suparak and Ceci Moss, the exhibition features work by Tammy Rae Carland, founder of Mr Lady Records and Video and my undergraduate thesis advisor and all around art hero, as well as Miranda July. This photograph is published on the Miller Gallery website, which tantalizingly suggests that July may be presenting the hugely influential but still underrecognized multimedia performance work The Swan Tool as part of the exhibition. Either way, the show looks like it's well worth a road trip.
