Se ACULILLO? Are you scared? @ ASS220 October 2017

¿Se aculillo? / Are you scared? is a one-month pop up exhibit in AS220’s Resident Gallery showcasing visual artists’ historically grounded and contemporary reckonings with fear.

The phrase. ¿Se aculillo?, is a Colombian taunt that roughly translates to, “Are you scared?” More literally, aculillo refers to a sensation of the body clenching or curling inward.

This October, as part of Hispanic Heritage Month, Lundberg Torres Sanchez invites Latinx/Latine artists whose work relates to themes of fear, apprehension, and the body, OR to the phrase ¿Se aculillo? / Are you scared? to submit work.

Note about Latinx and Latine: The show title uses both Latinx and Latine as gender neutral forms of Latina/Latino. Latinx is a distinctly U.S. American, gender-neutral term that has been taken up by queer, radical spaces, and, subsequently, the academy in the United States. Latine (and the practice of replacing “a/o” endings with “e”), on the other hand, is a gender neutral language that more easily flows and conjugates in spoken Spanish.





This September, Gallery Z in Providence, RI will be featuring works by local, regional and internationally known Latino Artists, including Nilton Cardenas (Peru), Virginia Delgado (Uruguay), Tamara Diaz (Cuba), Liliana Fijman (Argentina), Evans Molina (Cuba), Julian Penrose (Brazil) and Sidney Tillett (Guatemala).

Gallery Night Reception March 17, 5-9pm

This exhibit features a group of local professional artists who happen to be women, and whose work in a wide range of styles and media speaks to many ideas and issues that impact our world. On the eve of the 40th Anniversary of the Celebration of Women’s History Month, one might ask, “As women, what are some of the issues of concern from a woman’s perspective? How is the world, and how is the artworld giving voice to women today? Has the glass ceiling been shattered or shifted in the course of the last 40 years?”

The exhibit will include a special SALON ON WOMEN IN THE ARTS March 13th at 3:30pm with coffee led by women from all disciplines in the Rhode Island artworld – following the 2pm performance of Antigone by an all-female cast. All are welcome (yes, males too!)

The artists represented in the exhibit include: Jillian Barber, MaeAlice Davis, Tamara Diaz, Melanie Ducharme, Rebecca Flores, Margaret Hart, Saberah Malik, Madolin Maxey, Kate Oggel, Cynthia Packard, Hannah Resseger, Carol Rodi, Carol Scavatto, Zoey Stites, Rebecca Siemering, Erin Smithers, Kristin Street, Jacqueline Sylvia, Robyn Thomas, Jessica Thurber, Denyse Wilhelm, Cynthia Whelan Nelson, Gail Whitsitt-Lynch.

Women of Distinction Exhibit
March 3-28, 2014

Gallery Night Reception March 20, 2014 5-9 pm
The photographic portrait exhibit is created by Munir Mohammed and Erin X. Smithers with biographical information gathered by Linda A’Vant Deishinni through a collaboration with the International Gallery for Heritage and Culture.

The exhibit features images of over 75 women from the area who make a difference in our community. Some of them are well known and involved in our government, profit and non-profit world. Others are individuals who have an impact and are role models in less public arenas, as volunteers in unpaid positions, but who create a better world through their efforts and contributions in the community and the home. The photographs will be accompanied by brief biographies describing each one, illustrating the impact one person can and does make on the community in Rhode Island.


The project will be accompanied by a collection of images created by Central Falls High School Students working with their Art Teacher, Deanna Camputaro identifying and highlighting women who are their positive role models.

Where: URI 80 Washington Street, Providence RI


Unconference- Creative Feminisms: Art, Activism and Everyday Action

February 7, 2013 by Annamarie Tush

Join the Hive Archive and URI Providence Campus Arts and Culture Program to celebrate International Women’s Day on Saturday, March 9th at the University of Rhode Island’s Providence Campus for an “unconference” — Creative Feminisms: Art, Activism and Everyday Action.

We invite you to a day of lively conversation and discussion. Art of Hosting leader, Teresa Konechne, will guide us into conversations in the morning sessions. After lunch a panel of local renowned artists and activists, moderated by feminist artist and Pembroke Center scholar Faith Wilding, will speak about the connections between local and global movements. The three other panelists are Anna Shapiro, public and performance artist, Ju-Pong Lin, community performance and video artist, and Liandra Medeiros, founder of ONE World*UN Mundo Nonviolence Consulting Firm.

Following the “unconference” there will be an evening showing of Teresa Konechne’s film “Woven from the Land,” including a talkback with the film maker.
Our event will gather feminists and gender norm challenging folks, artists and creative people of all colors, and activated people of all stripes to work toward ending sexism and to create a gender equitable world. Strategies for future artistic endeavors and creative activism will be explored.

The University of Rhode Island’s Providence Campus Urban Arts and Culture Program is co-sponsoring the event and is also holding an accompanying exhibit of art, CREATIVE FEMINISMS: Art, Activism & Everyday Action Exhibit March 4-28 (gallery night reception March 21st) — a show for, by and about women in all media focused on health, wellness and empowerment.
