Hit the first day for the “Push Comes to Shove: Women and Power” exhibition at Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, 7374 East Second Street, and you’ll get to explore works by 19 artists addressing ways women think about and use power. It’s happening Saturday, October 1, from noon to 9 p.m., when museum admission is $10 (or free after 5 p.m.).
Created in partnership with ASU intermedia professor Muriel Magenta, “Push Comes to Shove” aims to “use art as a critical catalyst in rethinking and transforming the advancement of women.” Featured artists include Angela Ellsworth, Hilary Harp, Adriene Jenik, Mary Neubauer and Todd Ingalls, and Magenta — who curates the exhibition with SMoCA curator Sara Cochran.
The show continues through January 8, 2017, but there’s reason enough to check it out the day it opens, because artists Gabriela Muñoz and M. Janea Sanchez will be doing a durational performance. Visit www.smoca.org.
