Nevertheless We Vote: A Feminist Art Parade

November 3

NEVERTHELESS WE VOTE:

AN ARTISTS’ CALL TO THE POLLS

A Curated Parade of Artists Led By a

Grand Marshal and Drum Majorettes

November 3, 2018

Washington Square Park

New York City

On November  3, 2018, conceptual artist Michele Pred will bring her feminist art parade to Washington Square Park in New York City with a focus on the mid-term elections. Designed to bring politically motivated art out of galleries and studios and on to the streets, Pred’s parade is made up of artists that combine performance and activism with their portable projects.

Nevertheless We Vote is the latest in a string of overtly political art actions that Ms. Pred has produced over the last several years; both individually and in collaboration with other artists. In December 2017 Ms. Pred curated the Parade Against Patriarchy in Miami during Miami Art Week. For that version she invited women artists to participate. For the New York parade, the scope will be expanded to include male artists and their art. Confirmed artists include Michele Pred, Ann Lewis, Yvette Molina, Bayete Ross Smith, Christen Clifford, Daniela Puliti, Angie Wilson, Diana Kane (Feminist Gold) and Bud Snow. Invited but not yet confirmed artists include Hank Willis Thomas, Theresa Chromati, Jeremy Dean, The Guerrilla Girls and more.

The National Institute for Reproductive Health and Gun by Gun will be participating in the parade. Pred is also inviting a variety of additional social justice organizations to participate including Black Lives Matter, Institute for Women’s Policy Research, NYSYLC and NARAL.
