She performed Roll Call , a Carolee Schneemann-inspired performance during which Hebron read aloud the low percentages of women artists represented by art galleries, information written on scroll that she slowly unfurled from her vagina.

According to Gallery Talley's estimation, only 30 percent of the artists represented by commercial galleries are women.
