Feminism Now at Gallery D

FIG's current exhibit Feminism Now is currently at Gallery D in Barrio Logan through June 10, with the closing exhibition from 6-10 PM on the 11th. Catalogs of the work, which includes work by members of the Swedish group Krogen Amerika, are available at the show and through Amazon here.

The exhibit presents artworks that explore multiple visions of what feminism is today, in the context of Southern California and Northern Europe.
