The EVERY WOMAN BIENNIAL 2019 is the all woman and women-identified art biennial founded and curated by C. Finley. What began as the Whitney Houston Biennial, a wild one-night event of art and performance celebrating women in 2014, and expanded to a two-week exhibition in 2017 in the awakening of the #MeToo movement, will present its third iteration, titled Every Woman Biennial, from May 19 - May 29 in NY, and a sister biennial featuring LA-based artists June 2 - 12 in LA. The list of artists will post mid-April on and includes acclaimed artists dedicated to women’s issues - Patricia Cronin, Deborah Kass, Marilyn Minter, Swoon, Mickalene Thomas, Betty Tompkins - showing alongside emerging artists and artists from partnerships with Bard College, GenderCool Project, LAND Studio, Lower East Side Girls’ Club, and more.

Finley, based in New York City and Rome, is known for her elaborate paintings and intense use of color, monumental murals, multi-disciplinary collaborations, and her activism through urban art interventions, including her acclaimed Wallpapered Dumpsters. Initiating the Whitney Houston Biennale 2014, followed by the 2017 Whitney Houston Biennial: I’m Every Woman, Finley’s goal with the 2019 iteration is to expand the EVERY WOMAN Biennial, starting with LA this year, and creating a model to be replicated worldwide in 2021.
