The f Word is Feminism! It is also a thought-provoking and provocative exhibition of feminist art practice today.
Judy Chicago’s iconic feminist work The Dinner Party (1974—1979) was a starting point for this exhibition, conceived and curated by Caroline Phillips. The f Word features works from a range of contemporary artists, including Clare Rae, Catherine Bell, Penny Byrne, Jill Orr, Kate Just and Laurene Dieterich — besides many others.
The underlying principle of the exhibition is the question of how has feminism evolved since the 1970s, and how is it relevant to artists working today?
