FAC Call for Artwork About Feminism and Health
Curating Conversations through Creation
Call for Artwork for exhibition of 10″ x 10” artworks for the Truth About Healthy Lives Conference
Over the past five years of FAC programming, we have encountered many artists creating work about how patriarchy affects their health. Topics such as the politics around breast cancer, mental health, disability rights, menstrual health, reproductive rights and fertility are explored in our exhibitions and panels.
For some time, we have had the goal of creating a project that would focus on this topic as an anchoring curatorial theme. Recently, we have been invited to curate a conversation through art at the Truth About Healthy Lives Conference taking place at the Toronto Reference Library events space on April 8.
Organizers believe the work from our community will be both inspiring and provocative for their 500+ attendees. With the event space in mind, our curatorial team is asking for works of a standardized size of 10″ x 10”. We are looking for intimate works that speak to the themes of health from a feminist framework.
