The Personal Is Political
What do women think? Where do their brains wonder when they are given the time to be with themselves? What do their bodies feel when they can be present before the world? Women activists, artists, and thinkers insist that women’s personal experiences are framed by societal forces and norms, and that if we want to understand and change the world we need to grapple with these experiences.
The Personal Is Political is an exhibition that explores these questions, and the answers are intriguing to say the least! Women reflect on their experiences, and their connection to people, places, and the world. They worry about the state of the world and think about the sources of societal violence. They hope for a better future and act to create change.
Resident artist Deborah Eddy projects us into a domestic dystopia that shed light onto family violence. Feature artist Rebecca Piper looks into female sexuality, how it is perceived by women and society. Feature artist Ruby Barnsley speaks about connections, relationships, and vulnerability at the intersection of the personal and the political.
