Take Everything Features Feminist, Punk-Inspired Works

Joan of Arc meets Courtney Love in Michael Hubbard’s upcoming exhibition Take Everything, beginning Monday, Sept. 15 at The Gallery at the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts.

Hubbard’s solo exhibition, Take Everything, features paintings and installation work tracing a lineage of punk-rock feminists. Following the social and political activism of the Riot Grrrl and female-driven punk rock movements of the ‘90s, Hubbard relates those drives to current social and political movements. This specific exhibition focuses on two very different personas: former Olympia resident Courtney Love, and medieval warrior Joan of Arc. Though very different, Hubbard shows how both women act as points of reference in an exploration of the punk-feminist universe.

A special opening reception on opening night (Sept. 15) features Full Moon Radio performing live in the Minnaert Center Black Box Theater. The reception begins at 6 p.m. and is free, with music beginning at 6:30 p.m. 

Take Everything runs Monday, Sept. 15 through Friday, Oct. 31. Gallery hours are noon to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday during this exhibition. For more information about The Gallery at the Minnaert Center, visit www.spscc.edu/gallery
