a feminist maxim THE PERSONAL IS POLITICAL, as well as relying upon our
reasons why we deal with feminisms, what makes us publicly declare
ourselves feminists, we have come up with the exhibition title STATE
We would like to know how deep and in what ways the system, the
state, the authorities and politics govern our life as well as to what
extent and for what reasons they have the urge to enter and control our
lives, bedrooms, bodies and minds.
We would especially like to reveal
the ways we accept or do not accept their seductions, kisses, orders and
violences. We would like to strip off the system the way the system
strips us off.
We would like to hit the system back, or kiss it back. We
ask for your ideas, concepts, works, your ways and your stories which
will help us unravel this story and find out why we have the feeling

has on the personal. Which is political. Which is personal.

The 'Resolutions – What’s Yours?' show at Hopkinson Gallery is a two-part show. With this show we are looking to explore the resolutions that people make and why.
We have invited artists to express their resolutions in an artistic
form. Featured artists: Cat Forward / Roberta Orlando / Lubarbara
Blaster / Sharon Reeves / Svitlana Kolesnichenko / Rachel Long / Raj
Hopkinson Gallery also invites our audience to participate and tell us what their resolutions are and why. Some of the art works exhibited are for sale. We hope that you enjoy the show.
