FavourEconomy :: Stations + Doing Feminism / Sharing the World | George Paton Gallery | Monday, 11. December 2017

FavourEconomy is being exhibited at George Paton Gallery and participating in ‘Doing Feminism / Sharing the World’ curated by Professor Anne Marsh this coming December in Melbourne.

FavourEconomy:Stations will present audio recordings shared by over 80 women in a public but intimate listening environment at George Paton Gallery. Multiple headsets placed on 24 separate chairs play the sound files on a randomised and continuous loop. Each chair is a site specific offering conceived by a contributor as a symbolic representation of themselves and their art practice - otherwise these are simply a seat that a contributor would like the visitor to sit on while listening. A series of public programs and performances will accompany the exhibition, see below and event links for further details.

Catalogue essay by Briony Downes.

FavourEconomy is occurring at a time when we have the greatest numbers of women working in the arts, yet women still do not have commensurate representation in leadership, exhibitions, publications and collections. While there are many systemic issues to be addressed there is one area that can be addressed by this project. We aim to support a culture where women help out other women in order to strengthen the female voice and power in the arts. We posit that our efforts can benefit others and that the more we support one another the easier it will be for women to impact upon the circuit of contemporary art production and dissemination.

For so many women the path to ‘success’ in the arts is hazardous. Subsequently the female voice often vanishes from public discourse before being heard. FavourEconomy investigates and presents the lived experiences of a diverse range of female and female identifying practitioners working in the arts today- creating value of a different kind.

FavourEconomy is led by Claire Field, Alex Pedley and Bronwyn Treacy
