What does refusal look like? How does it fuel our ability to envision hope? Inspired in part by Theodor Adorno’s writings critical of the fascist tendencies found in American democracy—today especially relevant under Donald Trump’s presidency—Fuck the Patriarchy explores negation’s ability to envision (and complicate) hope and optimism for a better world and a feminist future.

Some interpretations of Adorno find an unresolved hope that wavers between possibility and impossibility, while allowing space for the uneasiness of nonidentical (that is, incoherent, difficult) experiences. In this view, hope is a radically engaged and deeply felt attunement to the present, in all of its uncertainty and dissonance. Fuck the Patriarchy is a refusal that likewise aspires to defy what it refuses and accept the unknowable. Toward this end, the works in this group exhibition both celebrate resistance and tap into the despondency of our current political climate.
