Material GirlsBook - 2015
The large-scale group exhibition, 'Material Girls', which this book documents, was an exploration of material process and notions of excess as they relate to the feminized body, gendered space, and capitalised desire, bringing together Canadian and international emerging, mid-career, and senior female artists from across artistic disciplines and cultural backgrounds. This publication features full colour installation images, along with details of several works, and three critical essays by the exhibition curator and guest writers. Sumptuous, decorative and visually overwhelming, the contents of 'Material Girls' becomes a horror vacui, a jubilant and visceral counterpoint to the modernist-derived and ideologically-constructed convention of the austere white cube.
