Announcing our Summer Group Exhibition: If Only Bella Abzug Were Here


We’re proud to present “If Only Bella Abzug Were Here”, a group exhibition curated by Tim Hawkinson and Ken Tan to commemorate the life and achievements of Bella Abzug with a selection of works by both established and emerging female artists, chosen for their highly original voices and unique visions.

Born in the Bronx on July 24, 1920, Bella (Savitzky) Abzug was a tireless and indomitable fighter for justice and peace, equal rights, human dignity, environmental integrity and sustainable development. Known as “Battling Bella,” and easily recognized due to her penchant for large hats, Abzug co-created and was president of the Women’s Environmental and Development Organization (WEDO). The organization was the culmination of her lifelong career where Abzug galvanized support and helped transform the United Nations agenda regarding women. She served in the U.S. congress. Today’s generations still benefits from her timeless ideals and actions.

If Only Bella Abzug Were Here” features works by: Nicole Eisenman, Anj Smith, Joan Levinson, Tomona Matsukawa, Eleanor Ray, Ann Craven, Rachel Selekman, Holly Coulis, Bettina Blohm, Lily Kelly Napangardi, Anna Leonhardt, Genieve Figgis, Emma Rivers, Sarah Crowner, Shara Hughes, Nicole Cherubini, Shirin Neshat, Emily Wardill, Kirsi Mikkola and Liliane Tomasko.
