Difficult Women (2015-2016) was a feminist performance art series funded by sales of hand-painted clothing and bags. Its mission was to create audiences for challenging content and to pay performers fairly. The inaugural pop-up and performance series happened at General Public Collective, and the pop-up shop toured to The Egg, a diy art space in Chicago’s Humboldt Park.
This project was a collaborative effort between Rachel Enneking, Copy Culture (Anna Martinez and Taryn Cassella), Jessica Dunn, Lisa Berlin Jackson and Erin K Drew.
Performers included Forced into Femininity, Dawn Raid, Mary Ocher, Bad Psychic, Copy Culture, LA Warman and Other Girls.
