The View From Here: 19 Perspectives on Feminism



← Previous Image  Next Image → Image credits ↓

The View From Here: 19 Perspectives on Feminism pairs eight writers with eight artists to explore new feminist ideas and their influence on emerging arts practices. The participating artists and writers have worked together in dialogue over the past year, and their different perspectives on feminism are manifested in the publication and exhibition. New relationships were forged, opinions navigated and in some cases, collaborations were formed.

The View From Here offers a range of visual and written works exploring themes of identity, sexuality, gender politics, representation, ‘post’ feminism and femininity. Together, the works suggest a new perspective on feminism—a view that is non-prescriptive, that references the past whilst carving out a future. The result is a cacophony of voices that represents the myriad feminisms being negotiated in our time.

Curated by Victoria Bennett and Clare Rae.
