Co-curated with Dr. Louise Burchill
December 9-12, 2-14
University of Melbourne
This exhibition was presented as part of the Topologies of Sexual Difference Luce Irigaray Circle Conference, Melbourne, Australia, Wednesday 10 to Friday 12 December 2014, hosted by The Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne and The Communication, Politics and Culture Research Centre at RMIT.
In order to think and to experience sexual difference, Irigaray suggests reconsidering the Western tradition’s conceptions of space and time. Conceptual and material practices in sculpture, painting, photography, text and video engage in powerful dialogue with the strategies, metaphors, spaces and places envisaged within and beyond Irigaray’s work to manifest new discourses and expand our ways of seeing and living sexual difference.
