Curated by Rachael Haynes & Simone Hine
This exhibition emerged out of conversation about Australian feminist performative artworks and embraces conversation as a curatorial method. Each curator suggests an artwork, that the other responds to with another artwork. A printed conversation accompanies the exhibition and documents this exchange. The conversation ranges from questions of how to define feminism today and how it operates as a political or personal framework, to exploring intersectional identities and self portraiture, examining the body in relation to humor, and performance in relation to history and re-enactment. Converse is an exhibition as dialogue and considers the ever shifting and unravelling nature of contemporary feminist art practice.
