Care: Feminism, art and ethics in neo-liberal times

Claire Field & Caroline Phillips, care (2019), George Paton Gallery, Melbourne.

Care: Feminism, art and ethics in neo-liberal times critically explores how care in its many forms represents an alternative ethics to neo-liberalism. In recent years, feminist critiques of neo-liberalism have argued for the concept of care as an alternative structuring principle for political systems in crisis and have proposed that the transformation of the existing capitalist order demands the abolition of the (gendered) hierarchy between ‘care’ — the activities of social reproduction that nurture individuals and sustain social bonds — and economic production. What would it mean to substitute care for economics as the central concern of politics? What would caring for democracy look like? And how can we cultivate new habits of care that allow us to take better care of one another, of ourselves and country?

The Care Network is a research community forming around the Care Project. It aims to produce a symposium, exhibition and scholarly publication which integrates knowledge produced through non-traditional research outputs. With this goal in mind, the Care Project Network facilitates discussion and engages with a range of communities. A network of artists, researchers and practitioners have come together in several informal Round Tables and a Symposium  in 2019, and a series of exhibitions in 2020 is being developed -subject to Covid-10 restrictions – drawing together the range of current research and art making that utilises care as a strategy and/or platform for art practice.

Crafting Resistance – Six Moments in Kingston

2019 Crafting Resistance – Six Moments in Kingston, Kingston Arts Centre, Melbourne,

August 22- September 14, 2019

Curated by Tal Fitzpatrick

 

Curated by craftivist Tal Fitzpatrick, this exhibition showcased a  diverse collection of textile protest banners and video documentation created by local participants and community organisations during the mini art festival Six Moments in Kingston.

Taking inspiration from the story of Julie Cooper, the first woman elected to local council in 1976 and first female mayor of Moorabbin in 1982; the banners commemorate the legacy of women’s suffrage and the struggles for equal rights endured into the present day.

Totem and Taboo

Totem and Taboo

5th – 21st September 2019

Totem #1, 2019. Digital photograph on tyvek, 42x60cm

Totem & Taboo makes connections between thought, feeling and the material. Freud’s iconic text of the same name, written in 1918, explores the primacy of instinct, sexuality and spirituality to the organization of society, through an anthropological study of the rituals and beliefs of certain Indigenous groups, including Indigenous Australians. It links social and political organizational paradigms to innate psychological structures of his formation of the Oedipal complex, and aligns the ‘dark continent’ of the category woman, to ‘the primitive’. Whilst Freud’s ideas construct a racialized and hierarchical view that has been widely discredited, evidence of the dominance of such a patriarchal world view remains, over 100 years later.

What would it look like if the world rejected a masculinized power structure as a useful framework? How would we do that? What other forces would, then, be uncovered? Drawing on the artist’s continuing explorations of the object as a feminist strategy, Totem & Taboo explores an imaginary world of people and things, conjoined in a sense of community, strength and agency. Images and objects of encounter provide moments of ritual, protection, kinship, balance and transformation.

Conspicuous Presence makes visible the work of five Australian Women Artists of Colour. Through the heightened material presence of their work, the artists’ deploy conspicuous methods of commanding our attention; accentuating materiality, embracing a highly charged and embodied physicality, and gleaning our sensory reactions through their processes of making.

The contemporary politics of feminist art demand that Women of Colour are given a platform. The Women’s Art Register, historically inclusive of a wide range of cultural and political identities, shares this special IWD platform with these five contemporary artists, who make known their powerful identities and intersectional experiences through their materially charged practices. Conspicuous Presence recognises their visibility, acknowledges their presence and respects their voices.

2 August – 2 September 2017
Opening night: Thursday 3 August, 6-8pm

This exhibition asks six contemporary artists to respond to the radical Soviet feminist activism of Alexandra Kollontai. A sexual revolutionary, an author and a diplomat, Kollontai served as one of the first women in the Bolshevik government’s inner circle after the 1917 Russian Revolution. She fought female oppression and argued that women’s emancipation should extend to their sexuality, as well as their traditional roles in society.

As many of Kollontai’s policies were overturned by Stalin in the 1920s, this exhibition stands as a reminder of feminism’s troubled path, and its powerfully optimistic future.

A collaborative installation of sculptural works by Karryn Argus, Stephanie Leigh and Caroline Phillips, BOOB examines the relationship between bodies and objects through abstraction and materiality. These three artists make things out of timber, fabric, rope and soft stuff that amalgamates in seductive, feminised objects. Their differing forms encompass de-constructed bodies and simplified shapes, formed through handmade and industrialised processes. BOOB questions regimes of power and control, proposing alternate frameworks of elasticity, relation and fun.

Topologies of Sexual Difference

DSC_0068

Co-curated with Dr. Louise Burchill

December 9-12, 2-14

George Paton Gallery,

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.

Curated by Caroline Phillips and Victoria Duckett, this two week residency at West Space brought together a range of contemporary artists, theorists and practitioners. Through workshops, panels, films and food we asked what can we learn from our shared feminist histories and individual subjectivities, and what can emerge from a new dialogue and exchange.
