Artist Call – B*tch Fest

Theme: “es mi lucha” (English translation: it’s my struggle)

If you’re awake and breathing, you know there’s a war waging against our (female) gender. Has been for 10,000 years or longer. From the atrocities of various (and perpetual) war zones, to the workplace, courtrooms, behind closed doors, and even congress, women aren’t treated with or given the dignity and equanimity they deserve.

B*tch Fest will provide a platform for those artists courageous enough to confront these social justice issues. There is plenty to bitch about. Come share your struggle with us.

Submission fee: $12.50

Exhibit Location:
5683 York Blvd, Los Angeles CA, 90042
