Womxn* Art Handlers
The Womxn* Art Handlers is a group dedicated to the support and growth of POC, queer, non-binary, trans, and womxn* identifying individuals in the professional arts industry as preparators, art handlers, technicians, fabricators, and other industry support roles. W*AH aims to connect the community through mixers, teach basic skill sets and techniques through workshops, and eventually provide training for interested individuals to learn how to handle and install artwork in partnership with local institutions. Fasten is an exhibition that visualizes the art work and labor of art handlers. Through the visual art practices of four different art handlers that identify as underrepresented members of the arts industry (POC, queer, non-binary, trans, womxn*) this exhibition will make visible the dynamic art practices of these individuals while offering their skills and mentorship to the community at large. This exhibition will both show art, and teach others how to hang it.
