Help Overnight Projects and New City Galerie bring Brooklyn-based feminist and immigrant artist provocateur Katya Grokhovsky to Vermont: in support of this spring’s place-responsive performance and installation, Katya Grokhovsky: "Privately Owned" (May 10 – July 18), we will be live screen-printing limited-edition Bad Woman t-shirts. $20 at the door covers one print (materials on site or BYO), food and drink, and good (bad) company. January 19, 4-8PM. If you cannot attend but would like a t-shirt, email abbey@overnightprojects.com, or make a tax-deductible donation through our fiscal sponsor, the BCA Foundation, here

Who is Bad Woman? Bad Woman is a character invented by Grokhovsky. In the artist’s own words, Bad Woman is “a post-election entity — a persona — who truly cannot handle this world anymore, and is gradually unraveling and de-conditioning herself. She is a bad woman, an angry, enraged woman. She is tired, exhausted, she is many of us. Internally, she is what we whisper under our breath daily. She is simply trying too hard, gladly fails, she is not here to please anybody. She is eccentric, wild, unruly, unmade, remade, deconstructed.”

Who is Katya Grokhovsky? Katya Grokhovsky is a Ukrainian-born, Australia-raised artist working across mediums including performance, installation, and video. Her work addresses topics of gender, politics, migration, and displacement; it is gooey, radical, and timely. Grokhovsky is the founding artistic director of the Immigrant Artist Biennale and Feminist Urgent, and curated 2018’s iteration of Art in Odd Places.
