if I can’t dance to it, it’s not my revolution takes as its starting point a maxim by anarchist feminist Emma Goldman to examine the political movement of anarchism through counter-cultural artistic practices. Including works from the 1960s to today, the exhibition proposes three interlinked topics: “Free Love,” “Horizontality,” and “Black.” Each platform features archival documentation, works by self-identified anarchist artists, and pieces that both affirm and complicate strategies of disruption and resistance. Curated by Natalie Musteata, if I can’t dance to it anchors a variety of programs including a film series on the anarchist tradition.
Presented by the John B. Hurford ’60 Center for the Arts and Humanities in conjunction with the faculty seminar The Anarchist Tradition, Revisited, with additional support provided by the Distinguished Visitors Program of Haverford College.
