boobscape (3 skins), 2017 at Animal Intersections, 2017
The catalogue for Animal Intersections is available here, and the invitation below:-
I’ll be presenting on the Art Panel at Animal Intersections #AASA2017, The University of Adelaide on Monday 3 July. Also a new installation/iteration of my work boobscape, 2017 will be featured in the exhibition of the same name being held at The Peanut Gallery and Nexus Arts between 4-16 July, Adelaide. More info coming soon.
no matter how many notes I make – the weather, the latex age/batch, and just who knows what … conspire to affect the outcome – and most times these unknowables and uncontrollables are most welcomed – but when I really want a certain density / thickness to be reached so the boobs can hold their form without padding, and twice the casts have come off the mold too thin … it’s just too annoying
The Sexual Politics of Meat Exhibition is coming up soon at The Animal Museum. The exhibition itself will run from 26 February till 30 April 2017. I’ll be there for the install and opening weekend – and I’m thrilled at the line up of events – http://theanimalmuseum.com/events/spom-opening-weekend/
The Sexual Politics of Meat Exhibition: Opening Weekend Festivities
“How does someone become something?” – Fourteen contemporary women artists ask and explore this very question through a variety of media in The Sexual Politics of Meat, a landmark and thought-provoking exhibition presented by The Animal Museum and curated by Kathryn Eddy, Janell O’Rourke, and L.A. Watson.
Join us for an insightful weekend with the legendary Carol J. Adams, author of The Sexual Politics of Meat, Dr. Stephen F. Eisenman, and the exhibition curators and artists.
With special guests: SPOM author Carol J. Adams, Dr. Stephen F. Eisenman (author, The Cry of Nature: Art and the Making of Animal Rights), Martin Rowe (Lantern Books), and the exhibition curators and artists. PLUS live jazz music from Stray Dog Song, wine, beer and vegan bites.
2 to 3:30 PM
“The history of the sexual politics of meat slide show: working with ARTISTS, liberating ideas and oppressive images” presented by Carol J. Adams, followed by a Q&A
The Slide Show provides an ecofeminist analysis of the interconnected oppressions of sexism, racism, and speciesism by exploring the way popular culture draws on dominant Western philosophical viewpoints regarding race, gender, and species. It identifies how meat has been a valued masculine-identified protein source and the ways that assumptions about meat eating reinforce a gender binary. It proposes that many meat advertisements are conduits for hate-speech against women and also that they offer ways to encode “whiteness” without being explicit.
4 to 5:00 PM
“Women, Animals, and Art” Panel Discussion
A rousing discussion with Carol J. Adams, the curators, and artists that address the theories found within the book. Panel moderator: Dr. Stephen Eisenman, author of The Cry of Nature: Art and the Making of Animal Rights
