Square Peg, and ArtCan Members exhibition at the Circle Gallery, Sheffield, from 2 February – 30 March 2018. The show restricts works to 2ft x 2ft dimensions and considers artist’s experiences of being square pegs in round holes.
A chapter I have written on the representation of strippers in the media and contemporary art has been published. It is in the Routledge Companion to Media, Sex and Sexuality by Clarissa Smith, Feona Attwood and Brian McNair.
In it, I write about pop videos, films, popular feminist critical perspectives, academic writing, and activism. I also write about artworks including the Girlie Show by Edward Hopper, Lucky 13 by Philip-Lorca Di Corca, The Politics of Rehearsal by Francis Alys, Abstraction Licking by Christina Lucas, Cosey Fanni Tutti’s collages, Strip by Jemima Stehli, performance pieces Strike a Pose by Kate Spence, and Sister by Rosana and Amy Cade.
I took part in an innovative panel discussion, a symposium created by Victoria Lucas, in January, at HOME in Manchester. You can watch the event here.
