“If I Can’t Dance…” Exhibition Opens

March 19, 2014

This Friday, March 21st, is the opening of if I can’t dance to it, it’s not my revolution at Haverford College. The exhibition ” takes as its starting point a maxim by anarchist feminist Emma Goldman to examine the political movement of anarchism through counter-cultural artistic practices. Including works from the 1960s to today, the exhibition proposes three interlinked topics: “Free Love,” “Horizontality,” and “Black.” Each platform features archival documentation, works by self-identified anarchist artists, and pieces that both affirm and complicate strategies of disruption and resistance. Curated by Natalie Musteata, if I can’t dance to it anchors a variety of programs including a film series on the anarchist tradition.”

Gallery Talk: Friday, March 21, 2014, 4:30 p.m.–5:30 p.m.
Opening Reception: Friday, March 21, 2014, 5:30 p.m.–7:30 p.m.

The exhibition includes material by and from Black Mask, Adrian Blackwell, Luis Jacob, Claire Fontaine, The Living Theatre, Raymond Pettibon, and more.

A number of essays were commissioned for the show, including pieces by Allan Antliff, and one that I wrote: “New Questions for Anarchist Art.” It can be read HERE.
