Riot Grrrl, redux

Riot Grrrl, redux | Readin', 'Ritin', and (Publishing) 'Rithmetic |

Installation shot: Posters (c. 1991-present) from Riot Grrrl related shows, conventions and meetings internationally.


Alien She is a new exhibition that examines the lasting impact of the punk feminist movement Riot Grrrl on artists and cultural producers working today. It’s currently on view at Carnegie Mellon University’s Miller Gallery in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, before traveling nationally to cities including Philadelphia, San Francisco and Portland, Oregon. Below are photos of the exhibition and several of the featured works.


The show focuses on seven contemporary artists influenced by Riot Grrrl: Ginger Brooks Takahashi, Tammy Rae Carland, Miranda July, Faythe Levine, Allyson Mitchell, L.J. Roberts and Stephanie Syjuco. Riot Grrrl emerged in the early 1990s and emphasized female and youth empowerment, collaborative organization, creative resistance and DIY ethics. In various ways these artists have incorporated, expanded upon, or reacted to the movement’s ideology, tactics and aesthetics, as seen through several projects from each artist spanning the last 20 years, providing an insight into the development of their creative practices and individual trajectories.

The New Flickr: What it Means for Flickr Pro Users

Flickr made some big changes to its service; what do they mean for Flickr Pro users?

Laura Brown's curator insight, May 22, 2013 12:47 AM

 I've been a Flickr Pro user for years. I started paying so I could have unlimited uploads and storage, or at least enough for what I wanted. I also liked having the tag "Pro" on my name on the site. It was a small thing but something to know I was paying for what I was using and supporting the site. I would notice other "pro" users and tend to think of them as more serious and trust worthy when it came to sharing locations for urbex photos. This is one thing which Flickr is removing now that Pro users are being hustled off. I do feel we are being hustled. All the years I paid for my account, what was that for if they could have offered it all for free as they have done now? I'm not impressed. I have stood by and supported Flickr to friends and others who thought it was ruined by Yahoo or full of absent users. In my opinion, having my money back for a few months out of all the years I have paid is nothing. Pro users stood behind Flickr, supported the site and now we are nobody. Instead of paying for Flickr I could have spent that money on a new camera! I'm pretty disappointed.

Never paid for the service; even less likely to do so now.

You don't need to pay for it now. They are not even taking payments for anyone to pay for a new account. But, they will let those who currently have paid accounts to keep paying. Mainly just to not see ads and have stats for the photos posted.
