RE/SISTERS: A Lens on Gender and Ecology (Hardback)Alona Pardo (editor)
to the politics of care, this timely exhibition catalog looks at
environmental and gender justice as indivisible parts of a global
struggle. A culturally diverse selection of works by Laura Aguilar,
melanie bonajo, Xaviera Simmons, Minerva Cuevas, Barbara
Kruger, Nadia Huggins, Ana Mendieta, Sim Chi Yin, Pamela Singh,
Francesca Woodman and others are presented alongside works
of an activist nature to demonstrate how women are regularly
at the forefront of advocating and caring for the planet.
Amplifying these visions are illuminating essays by experts in
the field, including Professor Kathryn Yusoff, Professor Astrida
Neimanis, Professor Catriona Sandilands and Professor Elizabeth
DeLoughrey, that consider a diverse range of pertinent topics
such as hydrofeminism, the body as earth, queer ecologies,
and environmental racism. Together these texts and important
artworks reveal how the oppression of women, feminized
bodies and indigenous, Black and trans communities and the
degradation of the planet are inextricably linked—and the
ways in which understanding our environment can resist and
overcome the logic of capitalist economies.
