art, feminism and the body
Critical Forum - Double Vision: A 21st century exploration of art, feminism and the body
Friday 19 October, 3.00pm - 5.00pm
In the wake of postmodernism, feminism, and the increasing fragmentation of the body image in popular culture, how is the body interpreted and re-configured in contemporary art? This informal forum will explore these questions, with diverse perspectives provided by theorists, artists and curators on aspects of art, feminism and the body. The forum will encompass feminist histories, new artistic approaches and local anecdotes.
JULIE RRAP: BODY DOUBLE
30 August 2007 - 28 January 2008
This major exhibition of the work of Julie Rrap, one of Australia’s most prominent artists, brings together photography, video, sculpture and installation from the past twenty-five years of the artist's practice. Curated by Victoria Lynn, the exhibition explores the persona of the ‘trickster’ in Rrap’s work, the theme of the ‘body double’, and considers the ways in which the artist oversteps the margins of bodily representation.
A major book, Julie Rrap: Body Double, with text by Victoria Lynn and co-published with Piper Press, will be available at the MCA Store
