According to recent studies, female-identified persons represent about a third of all gallery-represented artists globally; in the songwriting world this number goes down to a little more than a tenth. In the NYC rock/punk scene in particular, female-identifying musicians must fight several orders of magnitude harder than their male peers for their voices to be heard.
No voice hush’d is a representation of our method to rectify this, starting here in NYC through the uniting of female-identified artists across disciplines. Art videos, paintings, installations and more share a literal and figurative stage with the performers and poets performing that night, their works united by their creation from a non-male perspective. Muchmore’s, the venue for the night, is a Brooklyn space with DIY tendencies known for its inclusiveness in programming.
No voice hush’d focuses on the artistic power of this group, providing for them a platform of support and a spotlight for their work.
