Our current exhibition, Take Back the Fight: Resisting Sexual Violence from the Ground Up, focuses on organized responses to gender and sexual violence, highlighting the ways individuals and communities have developed creative and powerful grassroots and non-institutional justice and healing practices. A collaboration with Lesbian Herstory Archives, Take Back the Fightnarrates intersecting histories of activism by and on behalf of survivors of sexual violence and their communities. The exhibition will coincide with a series of public events in order to collectively engage with the exhibition material, relating the histories presented to ongoing efforts to end and heal from sexual violence.
Join four of the Take Back the Night curators (Louise Barry, Rachel Corbman, Melissa Forbis, and Lani Hanna) for a conversation about the material included in the show, and the history of organizing against sexual violence.
This event is free and open to the public; no RSVP is required. This exhibition tour, as part of the exhibition Take Back the Fight, is funded in part with public funds from the Decentralization Program of the New York State Council on the Arts, administered in Kings County by Brooklyn Arts Council.
