ELF Art Audit – Saturday 30 June – Curators’ Talk
Saturday 30th June 2012
Midday – Cob Studios and Gallery, 205 Royal College Street N1 0SG
As part of the East London Art Audit campaign, we are hosting a talk from the curators of ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’, an exhibition at the Cob Studios and Gallery curated by Natasha Hoare and Roxie Warder.
The exhibition features the work of 6 female artists made in response to the Gothic short story, The Yellow Wallpaper, by Chalotte Perkins Gillman. The text was hailed as a polemic feminist work that vividly explored female tropes of domestic space, motherhood, hysteria and the ‘strangeness’ of the female body.
Including artists Eve Ackroyd, Becky Allen, Gabriella Boyd, Adeline de Monseignat, Suzannah Pettigrew, Fiona Robertson, the exhibition celebrates the beautifully wrought and terrifying story, reflecting on interior spaces, the power of imagination and the role of medicine in pathologizing femininity.
Please join us for the talk at Cob Studios and Gallery at midday and we will be heading to the pub, as usual, afterwards for drinks and discussion.
