September 2015 Lists

Holographic Universe by Suzanne Treister

A category which reconsiders and recontextualises the whole of art history and art production in all forms and at all levels of professionalism; from cave painting through the Renaissance, to modernism and contemporary art, including so called primitive, outsider and psychedelic art; forgetting everything ever written down through the ages by academics, art critics, art historians and the artists themselves; looking beyond these constructions to what all artists may have always unwittingly been attempting to depict, to greater or lesser success, from within the prevailing mindsets of their own space and time…the Holographic Universe.

Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Feminist by Eve Luckring 

This is a collection of a very few of the many women who have inspired, challenged, and influenced my work, which questions the assumptions–and experiments with the boundaries–that define place, body, and habit.

Hopefully it is obvious by now that feminism is multi-faceted and fluid.  We come to our stances from a range of experiences, interconnected and interdependent, though not equal. Feminism is plural. Feminism is a cacophony. Feminism is a process.  I don’t know that we will ever arrive.

When the blackbird flew out of sight,
It marked the edge
Of one of many circles.

—Wallace Stevens

It Is Almost That (Contributors) by Lisa Pearson

I’ve included works here by all of the contributors to Siglio’s 2011 It Is Almost That: A Collection of Image+Text Work by Women Artists & Writers. Some of the works below are included in the book; many (most) are not. The afterword can be read in full here, but briefly this a collection of works that are category-defiant, media and genre expansive, by artists and writers who one may not usually find in the same place. The idea is brush works against each other to create new and different conversations.
