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.
