Exhibition Opening and Artist Talks | Configure
Join us to meet the artists involved in creating the feminist exhibition Configure, and to celebrate the show’s opening.
Inspired by Womanhouse , the historic art installation and performance space exhibited in Los Angeles, California in 1972, the 2021 incarnation of Configure continues to observe social representations and expectations of women via the art of female artists. Particular interest and societal inquiry focuses on body image, identity, and how popular culture has – and continues to – shape our perception of femininity.
In this group show, Ōtepoti-based artists Kiri Mitchell, Sarah Baird, Kylie Norton, Maggie Covell, Tamara Nicholson, and Michele Beevors explore feminism and feminist artwork. Within Configure, the artistic media vary, ranging from sculpture to animation to embroidery.
