The F Word

Western Front
18 × 22.5 × 0.8 cm

This 2009 catalogue was produced to accompany The F Word, an exhibition presenting a range of video-based practices that explore the relationship between liveness and media, the roots of feminist video, persona development as critical methodology, and the performance of gender. The artists featured are Canadian and international women artists whose practices intersect with a number of contemporary feminist social, cultural and political movements, theories and moral philosophies concerned with gender, equality, rights and access. The works’ production dates range from 1976 to 2009. This exhibition is poised at a critical time as women’s media practices today are furthering feminist discourses in ways that are notable, varied, rigorous and unexpected. The F Word was presented in association with the Vancouver Art Gallery’s WACK! Art and the Feminist Revolution.

Artists included:

Rebecca Belmore, Patty Chang, Allyson Clay in collaboration with Lisa Robertson and Nathalie Stephens, Kate Craig, Shawna Dempsey and Lorri Millan, Klara Lidén, Deirdre Logue, Jillian McDonald, Lisa Steele and Salla Tykkä
