A group show curated by CULTIVATE VYNER STREET 'That girl thinks she's the queen of the neighborhood. I got news for you, she is!' (Bikini Kill 'Rebel Girl') The YEASTIE GIRLS show re-visits the ethos of 'Riot Grrrl' - the underground feminist punk rock movement that took place in early nineties west coast America. The show aims to bring together today's riot grrrl inspired creativity; art, music, writing, zines……. Is riot grrrl still relevant 20 years on? Are women now more empowered and supportive of one another?
The 90s riot grrrl movement allowed women their own creative space to make political statements about the issues they were facing in the male oriented punk rock community, as well as in society; to express their views on issues such as rape, domestic abuse, sexuality, and female empowerment. As Tobi Vail (drummer with Bikini Kill) said, the purpose of the Riot Grrrls was to fight against the things that kept women divided, to start a discourse and to give importance to women and the things that they do.
So, has anything changed in the last 20s years? What issues should we be addressing now? Can we still make our voices heard? What form does Riot Grrrl creativity take in 2013?
