September 15 - 30th, 2017

For Antidote’s quarterly themed group show ‘Engender’, I curated an exhibition at ALASKA Projects to compliment our outdoor exhibition collaboration with the Sydney Opera House – (see more at Lake Dolly). This process involved contacting / liaising with all artists and their relevant representation, organizing delivery & installation and developing a curatorial essay.

Role: Curator

The Details

Curated by Grace Partridge with assistance from Emma Size.

Antidote presents: Engender – a group show of work from contemporary artists whose work uses the body to address ideas of gender as a social construct that makes bodies legible under our society’s system of meaning-making. With an emphasis on our Australian context and the intersectional, entangled nature of identity, we will present a diverse set of approaches to understanding how gender informs lived experience, how the male gaze operates and how it is inflected by white, colonial and ableist gazes, and how self-representation of the body and identity can interrogate the ways in which we move through the world as gendered bodies.

Featuring work by Tony Albert, Angelica Mesiti, Liam Benson, Angela Yu, Get To Work, Archie Barry and Echo Morgan. Engender showed at Alaska Projects from September 15 – 30.
