SBC is a feminist collective that uses art, language, and design to visualize the trivialization of women’s experiences. SBC was formed in 2014 around the goal of producing public artworks with a mission to halt the perpetuation of sexism in our culture. Situating themselves within the history of women’s arts activism, they draw attention to prevalent language that continues to foster resentment and disrespect towards women, initiate community interaction to support the sharing of experiences, and instigate progress towards the eradication of misogynist language from our collective vocabulary. SBC’s work is manifested through art installations, performances, printed material, social media campaigns, and social interactions.
SBC is made up of three feminist artists: Amy Cannestra, Myszka Lewis and Maggie Snyder.
Amy Cannestra recently wrote that her work reminds her of being 17 and breaking up with her first boyfriend in a local Burger King. She couldn’t help but laugh. She was not laughing at him, but more at the uncomfortable tension and awkwardness of the situation. Through video and sculptural installation, Cannestra creates uncomfortable situations and masks them with twisted humor and gore.
Amy is currently located in Cleveland, MS. For more information about Amy, visit AmyCannestra.com.
Myszka Lewis is a multidisciplinary artist working primarily in printmaking, painting, and fibers. Her work prods at the distinctions between what it means "to make" and "to build". Borrowing from the language of making, crafting, and building, she creates images of hard objects using soft materials such as fabric, dye, and thread to address conceptions of certainty, familiarity, stability, and labor.
Myszka is currently located in Madison, WI. For more information about Myszka, visit MyszkaLewis.com.
Maggie Snyder is a conceptual artist and media producer. Her work is situated between play and violence, the sublime and the chaotic. She is interested in asking questions about the self, the Other and about abjection, and focuses on framing the process as a critical and necessary discourse for discovery.
Maggie is currently located in Madison, WI. For more information about Maggie, visit maehymn.com.
