Girls’ Club in Fort Lauderdale has teamed up with the TM Sisters – Monica López De Victoria (FIU BFA ’02) and Natasha López De Victoria (New World School of the Arts BFA ’05) – to present a new, completely locally published catalog for the TM Sisters-curated exhibition for Girls’ Club, I think it’s in my head.
The catalog is designed by Augusto Mendoza (FIU BFA ’12), who runs his own publishing and graphic design organization called Books Are Nice. The 86-page catalog features an introduction from Girls’ Club Creative Director Michelle Weinberg, an essay on feminism and science fiction by Claire Evans, a work of fiction by Vanessa Garcia, and an interview with the TM Sisters.

A launch event for the new catalog will be held on Friday, September 12th, 2014 at Girls’ Club: 117 NE 2nd St, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33301.
Girls’ Club will host a 1:1 Relay Conversation at 7PM with the curators the TM Sisters, designer Augusto Mendoza, Michelle Weinberg (Creative Director at Girls’ Club), and Sarah Michelle Rupert (Gallery Director at Girls’ Club).
I think it’s in my head opened on November 10th, 2013, focusing on the mystical and mysterious. Including works from the collection of Girls’ Club Founders Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz, I think it’s in my head involved a diverse group of media. The exhibition included video, sculpture, and prints, among other mediums. According to Girls’ Club, the works were selected by the TM Sisters “for their vivid metaphysics and esoteric allure.” “Mysticism plays a large role in the exhibition as well as [in] our planned public programming,” said Sarah Michelle Rupert, the Girls’ Club Gallery Director, in November 2013. “From year to year we really try to bring something different to Girls’ Club and really shake things up in our space, collaborating with guest curators and showcasing very different sides of the collection.”
I think it’s in my head involved students and alumni of the College of Architecture + The Arts. “Florida International University has a wealth of talent in its teaching staff,” said Gallery Director Sarah Michelle Rupert, “and we are always excited to see new work coming from its students.” (Source: CARTA News, November 2013)
