BACK COMB THE HAIRY MUFF
Hey Folks, here’s another post from the Melbourne fish wives … as we will be intercepting a good few addicts on their way to porno paradise, a warm and wet welcome to all our new visitors. Over and out to Ms Natalie. (db)
These feminist shows that are all the rage sure pull in the punters.
Just the mention of a hairy muff and every part time art reveller from the past ten years turns up, smile on dial. The crowd last night teemed around the Margaret Lawrence Gallery like a swollen river trying to bust its banks. The Brown Council performed for them, taking turns to change a light bulb and make an accompanying drum roll. The action possibly speaks to pointless bureaucratic rigmarole, Sydney style.
Curator Laura Castagnini created a stir by including 2 male artists and owners of penises, Christian Thompson and Paul Yore in her radical curatorial selection. Men can be feminists too, you sexist bitches!
Backflip: Feminism and Humour in Contemporary Art is at the VCA Margaret Lawrence Gallery till 25 May
