‘APATHiE' was a group exhibition at the Distillery Gallery in South Boston showcasing the work of Marissa Malik, Sarah Gay O’Neill, Jennifer Murphy, Olivia Portegello (Flatline Zines), and Dael Mundy.
The artworks in ‘APATHiE' consider the constructs of femme identity through methods of coping with anger and outrage resulting from western patriarchy. How do femmes maintain their motivation to combat oppression in the wake of constant exhaustion due to stagnant societal progress?
The artists in this show are in constant dialogue with this question; each addressing it through the context of their personal narratives. The range of topics discussed include trauma, rape culture, feminism, and biracial identity. Together, ‘APATHiE’ creates a body of work displaying these intersectional feminist issues.
