THIS IS NOT THE WORK
9 – 27 September 2014
The Block, Creative Industries Precinct, QUT
For the exhibition THIS IS NOT THE WORK, feminist artist-run-initiative LEVEL continue their investigation of alternative curatorial methods. Surveying a selection of community-engaged artist projects from different locations around the world, this exhibition followed the pathways of women-centred social networks in order to initiate further collaboration and conversation. The projects documented in this exhibition are examples of artists working with women and community in challenging and unpredictable ways, demonstrating feminist sensibilities and a commitment to non-hierarchical and collective structures. As in the past, LEVEL uses the gallery as a conceptual base-camp or frontline rather than a just site of display.
Join us to celebrate the opening of THIS IS NOT THE WORK with an acapella performance by the Women’s Harmony Chorus: Brisbane City Sounds. Brisbane City Sounds Chorus is about excellent harmony. Featuring women from all walks of life, across all ages, and from all over Brisbane, and they are always on the lookout for new members to join.
As part of our exhibition THIS IS NOT THE WORK Level are hosting a 1 Million Stars to End Violence star weaving workshop on Saturday 20 September 1-4pm. The drop in workshop is free and all materials to make the stars will be provided. All of the stars made during the workshop will be sent to 1 Million Stars To End Violence.
