Trocadero Art Space is excited to present its annual International Women's Day Guest Curator Program for 2019, Love Letters to Feminisms. This year, the exhibitions is being curated by Dr Margaret Mayhew & Dr Nilmini Fernando

Love Letters to Feminisms sees Footscray play host to an exciting series of events exploring feminism in its many complicated dimensions. The group exhibition presents selected works from twenty female-identifying artists – all based in Melbourne. They include artists from First Nations backgrounds, refugee and culturally diverse backgrounds, as well as current asylum seekers, newly arrived migrants, LGBTIQ artists and others.

The exhibition will be accompanied by an afternoon of talks, a special session on feminist life drawing, and will culminate in a live performance event at Bad Love Club on Saturday 9 March to mark International Women’s Day.

This event is hosted by Loving Feminist Literature and Trocadero Art Space.

The Love Letters to Feminisms project is generously supported by City of Maribyrnong.
