First Riot Grrrl exhibition explores the lasting impact of the punk feminist movement

Pittsburgh's always been a bit of a counter-culture hotbed, particularly in the punk scene. Everyone's heard the Ramones and The Clash, and a few of you out there may have heard of Pittsburgh-local Anti-Flag - but a little-explored part of punk history is revealing itself at CMU's Miller Gallery. "A new exhibit at Carnegie Mellon's Miller Gallery is paying homage to this revolutionary movement in 'Alien She,' the first ever exhibition to explore the legacy of Riot Grrrl on contemporary culture. Through sculpture, film, photography, drawing, printmaking, music and performance, the show highlights the work of seven visual artists whose art practices have been indelibly influenced by the '90s feminist phenomenon."
