If you are in Beijing on Sunday Oct 25th please come to Inter Gallery 798 for this multimedia contemporary art show which deals with the difficult subject of sexual abuse particularly in times of conflict .The artworks on display respond to the transnational issue of violence against women during times of conflict from both a historical and contemporary perspective.
I am co curating this show with curator Fion Gunn and once the show is installed I will write on some of the works showing.
Intimate Transgressions can be seen at Inter Gallery until 1 November 2015. . Guided tours by the artists and curators will be open to the public throughout the show. It will then tour in other Chinese cities throughout 2016. 34 artists are participating in the exhibition and come from as far afield as Australia, India, Mexico, Ireland, Israel, Taiwan, France, the United Kingdom and the United States as well as China. The work is diverse and covers a range of media and styles from drawing and print to installation and video. The cohesion of the exhibition is its desire to initiate a dialogue about conflict and violence against women from a global and shared oppositional stance. For those opposed to global conflict this is an exhibition you should see.
