The Crossman Gallery will feature a feminist exhibit, The Pervasive Curse, produced by three Wisconsin-based artists known as Spooky Boobs March 4 through March 22.
Spooky Boobs is made up of Amy Cannestra [MFA ’15], Myszka Lewis [MFA ’15] and Maggie Snyder [MFA ’15]. The mission of the collective is to use art, language and design as a means to help stop the perpetuation of sexism in our culture.
The trio formed in response to shared sexist experiences while in graduate school at the University of Wisconsin- Madison.
“We found ourselves discussing these things over waffle fries and beer and decided to validate these experiences by visualizing them and connecting with other women over them,” said Spooky Boobs.
Cannestra combines video, sculpture, performance and installation to challenge social norms and tradition.
Lewis is a curator at Tandem Press in Madison, Wisconsin. Her artwork pairs printmaking with fiber arts and sculpture to address the conceptions of expectation and labor.
Snyder is an interdisciplinary artist whose work reflects where personal and political meet. She was a former instructor in the UW-Whitewater Art Department.
