Building Bridges Art Exchange (BBAX) and FABRIK magazine welcome All Women Are Dangerous, an exhibition featuring the work by seventeen women photographers and explores and highlights the rise of female contemporary artists. Through stunning imagery, each work sheds light on some of the most pressing issues facing each artist in hopes of starting a dialog around the question: are all women dangerous?

"The exhibition focuses on the use of photography as a vehicle to explore self identity and issues of gender presentation," stated Marisa Caichiolo, Director of BBAX. "While some of the featured artists have a conceptual or experimental approach, others have opted for the traditional photographic process. The common thread is that they all have established a very intimate and personal photographic discussion."

The exhibition will be on view from January 7 to February 15, 2017 at BBAX in Santa Monica's Bergamot Station and has been curated by Marisa Caichiolo, Director of BBAX, Chris Davies, CEO of Fabrik Media and publisher of Fabrik Magazine, and Cuban guest curator and art writer Daniel Alfonso.

"Only men are named in photography textbooks because the contemporary art scene is a greatly male-dominated area," stated Alfonso. "We want to show and recognize the role that women have played in changing the artistic landscape through their contributions."

The BBAX mission is dedicated to cultivating cultural understanding through the arts. They work to engage local communities and contemporary artists across the globe by facilitating workshops, educational programs, traveling exhibitions, international art exchanges and artist residencies. The main content of their exhibitions have a social and political focus represented by voices across the globe.

"These are the voices that will continue to challenge and change the current photographic landscape," said Davies.

The BBAX mission is dedicated to cultivating cultural understanding through the arts. We work to engage local communities and contemporary artists across the globe by facilitating workshops, educational programs, traveling exhibitions, international art exchanges and artist residencies.​

Building Bridges Art Exchange (BBAX) is a non-profit contemporary art organization established in 2005 by Argentinian artist and curator Marisa Caichiolo.

BBAX began as an experimental space in Downtown Los Angeles showing carefully curated multicultural and international contemporary art. The first border-bridging project was in Mexico, under a formal agreement with the Mexican government and in connection with 14 countries.

Our current space in Santa Monica’s Bergamot Station Arts Center offers rotating exhibitions from around the world, artist residencies, educational workshops and lectures hosted by a diverse team of artists. We are guided by board members from eight countries and hold an even more expansive international artist program. Our reputation has facilitated partnerships with museums, galleries, Ministries of Culture, cultural art centers, art organizations and foundations from across the globe.​

Coupled with many traveling exhibitions we host artists-in-residence, lectures, and workshops with the artists. In the countries where we send exhibitions, we encourage landscape interventions and performances that engage with the local communities. With these exchanges we create a dialogue, understanding and exploration between cultures.The main content of our exhibitions have a social an political focus. We engage with international communities with the help of our partners which include ministries of culture, cultural centers, museums and other local non-profits. Recently we have created an educational program with LA high school students to engage with our selected artists-in-residence through lectures and workshops both in the school and in our Santa Monica space. As part of the program we encourage young artists recently graduated from universities to participate in biennials, and residencies in partnership with our organization.
