1st Artist Talk of 2020 is with Helen de Main - delighted she has agreed to talk about her publication Go Around in a Circle in Domestic Bliss - a perfect fit!. Join us on Saturday 25 January at 2pm in Gallery 4.
The book takes its title from a set of guidelines in the New York Radical Feminist’s 1969 organising packet, "How to Start a Group". This material introduced women to the idea of consciousness – raising and provided them with a framework to start a group of their own. Helen de Main worked out at Platform Easterhouse for a year's engagement with women in Easterhouse through their own consciousness-raising group. The exhibition 'You Know, Things Like That' (2018) and this publication emerged out of that process.
"Go Around in a Circle" brings together works in printmaking and text that have directly or indirectly used this method and the ideas behind it to start conversations and produce artworks and writing.
It's free to pop along and join the conversation!
