  • All My Independent Women 2012

    20/09/2012

    Interested in understanding and supporting feminist modes of production and circulation of artists’ practices that deal with issues around gender, this project marks the coming together of three important archives: the Women’s Art Library/Make, the Open Music Archive, and the AMIW Video Lounge.

    The programme combines a series of talks, workshops, roundtable discussions, and viewings hosted at Goldsmiths University of London over a three months period, and two music commissions to be premiered on the 16 November at Cafe OTO.

    With: Miguel Bonneville, Genève Brossard, Ele Carpenter, Catarina Carneiro de Sousa, Hyun Jin Cho, Carla Cruz, Beatrice Dillon, Mónica Faria, Althea Greenan, Karen Gwyer, Mika Hayashi Ebbesen, Risk Hazekamp, Nina Hoechtl, Anna Jonsson, Alex Martinis Roe, Cristina Mateus, Susana Mendes Silva, Sameiro Oliveira Martins, Lara Perry, Rita Rainho, Flávio Rodrigues, Eileen Simpson, Evelin Stermitz, Francesco Ventrella, Lenka Vráblíková, Ben White.

    Exploring the different forms of distribution, promotion, and preservation performed by these archives that were once living networks, All My Independent Women 2012 searches for new modes of accountability and circulation within the arts that are based on dialogue with a potential for re-invention.

    MISS’OPO will reenact the artist Carla Cruz project’s “NAVEGAR É PRECISO VIVER NÃO É PRECISO” 2009 that inspired the floor that the artist created to our space. A part of the project is a huge mural with cards sent from Carla Cruz’s friends (our friends now too) all over the world.
    For it we liked to count with you collaboration, adding cards sent from our friends during February.

    Finissage will be on 6th of March of 2012 – 6pm. We would be very happy with your card!
