Humour has a unique ability to simultaneously disrupt and entertain. Seeking to challenging the ongoing stereotype of feminism as dry, dull and humourless, Kickstarters I’m Trying to Kiss You and 2012 NWF alumna Atlanta Eke perform for the closing night of BACKFLIP: Feminism and Humour in Contemporary Art. Presented by the VCA, the exhibition affirms laughter as a potent tool for feminist artists across generations, geographies and political contexts.
Following on from last year’s lecture by the Guerrilla Girls, BACKFLIP presents a range of strategies and approaches from slapstick to satire, detouring through irony and black humour.
Closing Night Celebration: Thursday 23 May, 6-8pm
Exhibition Dates: Friday 26 April – 25 May
