10 Feb Love & Feminism
10/9/17 – 8/10/17
Following on from the exhibition Beyoncé is a Feminist in 2013, Love & Feminism investigates a range of responses to the relationship between Feminism and love. Connecting with an intersectional approach, the invited artists, Jodie Whalen, Amy Milhinch, Mary-Jean Richardson, Alex Cuffe, Lynn Lobo, Madison Bycroft, and Grace Marlow, open up a dialogue about the complex nature of love and how it relates to a contemporary conversation around Feminism. Curated by Brigid Noone.
Second Hand Emotions
Love & Feminism and Fontanelle has partnered with Vitalstatistix for their Adhocracy 2017 residency project – Second Hand Emotions Emotions
Each year Vitalstatistix hosts a unique artist-in-residence initiative. Guest Australian artists join us to develop a new project, working with a team of South Australian collaborators, in the two weeks leading up to Adhocracy.
