Experience a night of women held space through music, film, discussions and art inspired by our upcoming Judithe Hernández exhibition in August, marking the first solo exhibition of a Chicanx artist at MOLAA.

The evening will include a performance by Alice Bag, a pioneering punk Chicanx singer & songwriter creating the first wave of punk in Los Angeles. And DJ sets by Chulita Vinyl Club an all-female vinyl collective.

Plus a performance by ELLA, a post-punk band out of Los Angeles spreading awareness and combating social injustices through ARTivism. . 

Don’t miss live art installations by female artists:

Artists Natalie Mik and Virginia Broersma present 'Afterlight', an art installation which uses the mediums of performance, video, and painting to remember forgotten and invisible bodies through ideas of ephemerality and permanence. The piece will be expanded by text written by Virginia Arce.

Grab Bag Studio presents  artist Kiyomi Fukui Nannery. Who will present an exercise in sincerity, where participants are invited to share one true statement about themselves, then add their thumbprint to the artist's collection. Through the impressions of the participants, a visual landscape of collective honesty will be formed. Grab Bag Studio program draws directly from the local community of artists by developing projects through exchange and offering exhibitions, workshops, performances and more. Grab Bag Studio encourages experimentation and process-based art-making that is responsive to our social and urban environment. In this regard, GBS is a community art project among and between the artists and the local community

Watch OVARIAN PSYCOS directed by Kate Trumbull-LaValle & Johanna Sokolowski, a documentary about a new generation of fierce, unapologetic and feminist women of color from the Eastside of Los Angeles who confront injustice, build community, and redefine identity through a raucous, irreverently named bicycle crew: The Ovarian Psycos Cycle Brigade. Stick around after the film for a Q & A with some of the ladies from the film.

Mujeres de Maiz (Women of the Corn) will be holding a space filled with dialogue aiming to bring together and empower diverse women. As an inter-cultural, intergenerational and interdisciplinary collective they have made that space from the stage to the page, the gallery to the streets, and ceremony and wellness world for women of color by sharing their own specific blend of mind, body, spirit and cultural work.

The night will also include all female craft vendors, food for purchase, photobooth and a cash bar.

Parking will be $5. We encourage biking or taking Metro to the event!

Bike Valet will be available and free.
