Writing/RIGHTing a Feminist Art Practice

 

FAG Satellite @ Access Gallery

Writing/RIGHTing a Feminist Art Practice: an investigation into parallel texts and parallel FAGs

Saturday, Sept 22, 3 – 5 pm

Facilitated by Amy Fung

Hosted by The Hammock Residency as part of FAG Satellite at Access Gallery

Investigating and challenging the parameters of language, namely, art language as a directive, descriptive, and dominant mode of formal
understanding, this workshop is designed to encourage “parallel texts” — a mode of writing and thinking that exists as a strategy to open up ulterior entry points into exhibitions and experiences.

The workshop is free to attend, but registration is required. Please send an email to amyfung [at] fast mail [dot] fm

A confirmation will be sent to all successful applicants.
