Defiantly trickling up from the curled lips of Donald Trump, the term “Nasty Woman” has evolved from a lowdown jab aimed at Hillary Clinton into a full-blown feminist movement. Beyond the viral hallmarks (red hats emblazoned with “Make American Nasty Again,” Janet Jackson/Hillary Clinton “Nasty” record covers, “Nasty Woman” coffee mugs and T-shirts, memes galore), it’s a call to action exemplified by the Women’s March on Washington taking place the day after Trump’s inauguration. As the Observer reported last month, artist Roxanne Jackson reacted to the election by placing a call for entries on Facebook: “Hello female artists/curators! Let’s organize a NASTY WOMEN group show!!! Who’s interested???” Opening in Queens on January 12, the resulting exhibition gathers 1,000 works created by nearly 700 female-identified artists. Presented as the effort’s “San Antonio sister,” Yes, Ma’am zine’s “Nasty Women Art Exhibition” serves to “demonstrate solidarity among artists who identify with being a Nasty Woman in the face of threats to roll back women’s rights, individual rights, LGBTQ+ rights, and immigrant rights.” Hosted at AP Art Lab in partnership with DreamWeek, the “completely inclusive” show mirrors the format of its New York sister by pricing works between $10 and $100 and benefiting Planned Parenthood. Free, 7-10pm Sat, AP Art Lab, 1906 S. Flores St., (210) 705-2332, facebook.com/yes.maam72. — BR
