The Women and Money Project

Opens Tuesday: “Women’s relationship with money in the U.S. is a complicated story of exclusion and opportunity, progress and oppression” is the big-picture theory behind this ambitious two-month series of exhibitions, films, performances, discussions, workshops and provocative events by an international consortium of more than 30 artists, feminists, critics, historians, filmmakers, theologians, peace advocates and intellectuals of all types. The main show includes Beth Grossman’s “House of Cards,” shown here, a clever, flimsy little structure made of plastic “money” surrounded by an idealized picket fence. Prepare for discussion; anticipate controversy. (Reception 6-9 p.m. Sept. 9. Free. Katherine E. Nash Gallery, Regis Center for Art, University of Minnesota, 405 21st Av. S., Mpls.
