Now open is GRLRM Collective’s exploration of artists and activists who work from the bedroom from economic necessity, political strategy, or an aesthetic choice. Or “all three” says the collective who comment on today’s gig economy and culture that is supported by part-time or freelance labor force, including professional bloggers, digital artists, telecommuter, craft entrepreneur, or those seeking celebrity on Instagram. “What new artifacts, ideas, and questions are girls and women bringing to these spaces through their work?” asks the collective.  “Most importantly how do we locate the diverse politics of bedroom cultures and forge new conditions of solidarity and care from within them?” Grlrm’s exhibition at Winchester Gallery will be made of activity that investigate women’s participation in “bedroom work” and archive the outcome online. “We are ultimately interested in how these platforms will cross-pollinate and allow for new ideas to surface and circulate among different kinds of readers, viewers, and participants.”
