HOT TOPIC REDUX
Kirsten McCrea (Toronto)

Residency May 23rd to June 7th, 2014
 

Focusing on the idea of archive as collaborative construction, Kirsten McCrea’s Hot Topic Redux residency will simultaneously interrogate and create a feminist archive through a series of open discussions with the public. On display will be ‘Hot Topic’, a series of 60 paintings of feminist icons based on the Le Tigre song of the same name, ‘The League of Legendary Ladies’, whose oversized faces viewers are invited to pose with, and an evolving text-based installation depicting the names of feminist icons suggested by visitors to the gallery. The artist’s final act will be to paint over the list of names, an act symbolic of the erasure feminist history is constantly fighting against.

Kirsten McCrea is a Canadian artist whose work explores issues of cultural memory, looking at pop vs. underground culture, the media, and popular mythologies. Known for her bright colours and figurative subject-matter, Kirsten is quickly establishing herself as a prominent emerging Canadian artist. Primarily a painter, she is also the founder and editor of Papirmasse, an affordable art subscription that sends a monthly print to hundreds of people around the world every month.

Tom of Finland stamps, available from 8 September 2014
Finland’s most famous writer and woman artist was a lesbian so it’s perhaps fitting that Tom of Finland is now firmly established as its most famous male artist… Tove Jansson’s Moomin characters have already appeared on a commemorative coin but later this year Tom of Finland’s beefy clones expose themselves to a wider public when they appear on postage stamps for the first time - { feuilleton }
