On Friday the Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery opened its latest show, if I can’t dance to it, it’s not my revolution, which takes its name from a quote by early 20th century activist Emma Goldman. The exhibit—the first of its kind—explores the political movement of anarchism through countercultural artistic practices.
Curator Natalie Musteata was on hand to celebrate her show’s opening, as were several of the exhibit’s artists and collaborators including Aldo Tambellini, Sherry Millner & Ernest Larsen, Adrian Blackwell, and members of the Wooden Shoe. Musteata also gave a gallery talk prior to the opening.
