May I Please Have a Sip of Your Power? was a sound installation that addresses injustice and power inequities. In a tone that ranges from the self-effacing to the demanding to the absurd, an ever-polite computer-generated voice sounds a broken record of questions that asks for what should be unquestionable rights.

Gallery goers and passersby were invited to play brainstormer designed madlibs that were then sent to 30 galleries in Chelsea that represent 70% men or more. The Guerrilla Girls invited people to join MAN (Male Art Now) to protest the many recent museum exhibitions devoted to feminism.

Scene & Herd was a performance and interactive artwork that engaged museum visitors in 2007 at the Brooklyn Museum's Sackler Center for Feminist Art. In addition to a live performance piece, Brainstorners created an ethical testing survey for the art world, which was conducted throughout the crowd. Answers were projected live on the walls of the museum and participants were given our publication: Scene & Herd. For video documentation - click on the link below

Point, took place across from the opening of P.S.1's “Greater New York” in March of 2005. Rumors of a gender imbalance in this show, which marketed itself as the most comprehensive survey of emerging New York artists, lead the Brainstormers to begin to research gender in the art world. They found that though women are the majority in MFA programs in the tri-state area, women are far less likely than men to have gallery representation. The performance made the museum's bias visible to the public

March 2005, P.S.1 unveiled its second "Greater New York" exhibition, which marketed itself as the most comprehensive survey of emerging New York artists. Shockingly the show included nearly double the number of male artists than female artists. Will 2010 be Greater Than Last Time?

On March 11, 2006, Brainstormers confronted visitors to the Armory Show with their performance, How Good Are You? Hundreds of people participated by completing surveys about art world ethics, answering questions about conflicts of interest in the art world and the lack of representation of women in exhibitions. Dressed as scientists in absurd costumes that made the discomfort of ethical dilemmas more inviting, Brainstormers processed surveys and handed out the Brainstormers’ Report Gallery Guide
