Northern Lights: FAG Selects

Phyllis Wattis Theater

Toronto-based FAG Feminist Art Gallery is a collaboration between the artists Deirdre Logue and Allyson Mitchell. They write: "Through FAG we host, we fund, we advocate, we support, we claim, and we make. FAG is focused on a diverse community of individuals and artists and our collective and communal powers. FAG is committed to the cultivation of a new kind of sisterhood that isn't based on gender and privilege and a new kind of brotherhood that isn't based on rape and pillage. FAG is feminist in its resistance and in its attempts to reconcile its participation in oppressive systems. FAG is not fixed. FAG is not success. FAG is feminist in its insistence in closing the gap between studio, gallery, art, activism, social, and home. FAG is feminist in its can'ts, its won'ts, and its wants. For More Than Just Queer, we present a selection of our film and video faves sure to stoke your feminist flames. In our 'FAGging it forward' style, the program will be international in scope but from a queerly Canadian home base."


Introduced by Julia Bryan-Wilson, associate professor of art history, UC Berkeley
