Savannah Spirit

Brooklyn based fine-artist

Self-portrait, Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2015

Artist Savannah Spirit's current body of work, My Body, My Choice is a call to women's rights as America faces the complete dismantling of Roe vs Wade. Joining the 4th wave feminists of her generation, Savannah's work addresses body politics, censorship, the male/female gaze and women's rights. She has began drawing the portraits helping to expose the hypocrisy on social media that renderings of the body are ok but a fine art photograph is not.  As an activist, Savannah has dedicated her time to photographing important civil rights issues starting with Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, People's Climate March, March Against Monsanto, Anti-Trump protests and the Women's March. Her image, "Claim Power" was recently published in The Abolitionist, a free paper by activist group, Critical Resistance distributed to incarcerated inmates throughout state prisons. She is currently working with Andre Jacobs, incarcerated inmate (Dallas 6) to help him and fellow inmates get their voices heard to a broader audience.

As a curator Savannah produced and mounted NYC's infamous erotic art show, Hotter Than July and has lectured at various Apple locations around NYC.

Her work has appeared in W Magazine, Forbes, Dazed, The Creators Project, Huffington Post, Monopol and The Nation. Savannah's photographs are in private collections in London, New York and Miami with a permanent piece in Tom Ford's Houston, TX flagship store. Her last show Hands Off My Cuntry was featured on german tv. Click for the clip.
