Launch of New Feminist Art Website Gives Emerging
Artists a Chance to Network

Release Party: Thursday July 7th, 6pm, Jigsaw, 526
East 11th Street, New York, NY
Contact: riffrag AT

New York, NY: On July 7th artists, writers, and
activists will celebrate the launch of riffRAG.
Located online at, riffRAG is a new
queer, feminist art magazine. The release party will
be held at Jigsaw, an independent gallery and
bookstore in the East Village. The party will feature
screenings and entertainment and the website will be
available for viewing. A limited edition print version
of riffRAG will also be for sale, featuring original
prints by riffRAG artists.

Fed up with lack of access to resources for “emerging”
and politically motivated artists, editors Felix Gato,
Em Sixteen and L.N.R. have created riffRAG to serve as
a forum for inspiration and creativity. The launch of
riffRAG comes at a particularly crucial time for
artists and members of politically progressive
communities. The launch party is all ages will
provide artists, activists and media makers a chance
to build community.

riffRAG highlights the extraordinary work that
emerging artists across the country are creating which
often slips under the radar of the art world. The
website features artists working in different mediums
and contexts who have distinguished themselves through
political activism, artistic vision and creative
determination. From whimsical works on paper by
mixed-media artist Muffie White to an interview with
James Spooner, the creator of the 2003 documentary
film Afropunk, riffRAG places artists working in
different communities in conversation with each other.
It brings innovative aesthetic practice with cultural
criticism, a pairing rarely seen in current artistic

An afterparty will follow the launch starting at 9pm
at Girlsroom, 210 Rivington Street, between Pitt and
Ridge. The afterparty is 21 and over.
