BODY (UN)MUTE
Online Exhibition

BODY (UN)MUTE

Available now

A two-day online festival that looks into the rituals of dancing and masking in times of social distancing. How do these rituals happen in online space? What are the solutions that can empower us and activate our bodies? How do we navigate through this switch between private and public space? What kind of knowledge and ideas can we extract from new media artists and dancers? Together, we will create an online experience that stays part of our memory as festivals do. Last few months, our movements and ways of communicating have been impacted by a global crisis. Distances between our bodies in public and private spaces have been regulated by new measurements. Our freedom of movement is on hold. Dancing became possible only in private, and suddenly it has a different meaning and context. It introduced another form of visibility, “performing” for the web camera on our online meetings, dates, events. In the beginning, it felt weird and awkward, but we are adjusting to it. Now it is time to emancipate the online body and get a deeper understanding of the new realness. It is time to unmute the body.

Jess Hill: See What You Made Me Do

Available now

Drawn from years of Walkley Award–winning investigative reporting on domestic abuse, Jess Hill’s See What You Made Me Do: Power, Control and Domestic Abuse, vividly conjures the scale of our national emergency. Winner of the 2020 Stella Prize and praised by Helen Garner as a “shattering book: clear-headed and meticulous, driving always at the truth”, See What You Made Me Do evokes a sense of urgency in the reader. Rather than asking questions like, “Why didn’t she leave?”, Jess puts perpetrators – and the criminal justice system enabling them – into the spotlight. Journalist Georgie Dent speaks with Jess about her searing exposé and manifesto for change.

The Enchanted Interior at Guildhall Art Gallery | Video Tour

Available now

The Enchanted Interior is an exhibition that explores the recurring motif of female subjects in art, as depicted in enclosed, ornate interiors. Such images are inherently alluring yet sinister, carrying implications of enforced isolation. This theme is prevalent in nineteenth-century British painting, with many Pre-Raphaelites and Orientalists showing a fascination with the so-called ‘gilded cage’. Visitors will encounter work by a breath-taking variety of artists from the high Victorian through to Art Nouveau, Aestheticism, Surrealism, and pieces by contemporary female artists, who ‘speak back’ to the historic tradition.
