The Artist Who Re-defines Basketball
When a woman artist is a basketball player ;)
Fempire 26 Apr 2018

Artist, Massachusetts

Artist Andrea Bergart’s line of basketball handbags is not only nicely designed and stylish, but is actually also a feminist premise to reclaim an male-dominated object. Bergart is a member of the artist, all-female Downtown Girls Basketball team, based in Chinatown, Manhattan. Bergart also hosts the YouTube channel “Call Your Ball Friends,” sponsored by Adidas, with fellow artist and Downtown Girls Basketball player Cecilia Salama, interviewing other female artists, who display their works on the typically male-dominated basketball court and discuss their practice. So these basketball handbags do carry more than our daily stuff when we wear them 😉
