Curated by contemporary artist and academic Dr Catherine Bell, FEM-aFFINITY brings together female artists from Arts Project and wider Victoria whose work share an affinity of subject and process. By situating female Arts Project studio artists alongside other female contemporary artists, the exhibition seeks to uncover intersubjective perspectives, offering variations on female identity and ways to look at historical feminist tropes.
Drawing upon interdisciplinary approaches, feminist methodologies and understanding artworks as a complex and nuanced way of thinking about embodied knowledge, the exhibition envisions how feminism materialises in distinctive and uncanny ways.
Featuring works by: Fulli Andrinopoulos, Dorothy Berry, Yvette Coppersmith, Wendy Dawson, Prudence Flint, Helga Groves, Bronwyn Hack, Janelle Low, Eden Menta, Jill Orr, Lisa Reid, Heather Shimmen, Cathy Staughton and Jane Trengove.
This exhibition is supported by NETS Victoria, Limb Family Foundation, Leonard Joel and Art Guide Australia.
