The National: New Australian Art 2017
Fellow Alex Martinis Roe is showing a part of her project „To Become Two“ at the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney.
Alex Martinis Roe’s new work draws on intensive research to build a narrative about the remarkable engagement with French feminist and post-structuralist philosophy in Sydney in the 1970s and 1980s. A multi-channel video connects the Sydney Filmmakers Co-operative, the Feminist Film Workers, the General Philosophy department at the University of Sydney, and related self-publishing groups which were active in these developments. This will be presented alongside archival material within an installation that explores the modest domestic spaces in which transformative debates and thinking often occurred locally. During the exhibition a series of workshops and events will take place in the gallery which revisit the history of feminist theory in Sydney, offering fresh perspectives on its origins and legacies.
