VOTE FOR ME - MIA VAN DEN BOS, ROMI GRAHAM, SASHA GRBICH, MARY-JEAN RICHARDSON - CURATED BY POWERHOUSE
Opening - 5:30 PM - Wednesday, 7th September
Running - 8th September - 24th September 2016
Vote For Me is a national multi-venue feminist exhibition that will show across three Adelaide artist-run-initiatives FELTspace, Format Gallery and Fontanelle Gallery, and is facilitated by curatorial team, Powerhouse: Brigid Noone and Kate Power. The exhibition engages with ideas of self-promotion through a feminist lens and considers the nature of women’s practice as holding up a collective presence as opposed to the heroism of the lone artist. The statistical position of women in art is a platform to think about self-promotion as an articulation or position responding to women in the hierarchy of art. The exhibition will present women’s individual practice and ask artists to respond to ideas of self-aggrandisement, vulnerability, discomfort with self-advancement and ways of measuring of success.
The exhibition will feature Frances Barrett, Ashleigh D'Antonio, Virginia Fraser and Elvis Richardson, Sera Waters, Mary-Jean Richardson, Sasha Grbich, Romi Graham, Hissy Fit and Mia Van Den Bos.
