Feminist art and entertainment magazine Petunia, founded in 2009 by Valérie Chartrain, Dorothée Dupuis and Lili Reynaud-Dewar, has been invited to curate an exhibition at Fri Art.
Pro-Choice stems from the biography of Mary Shelley, one of the most prominent inventors of modern science fiction. Her political activism, insights on sexual freedom, radical unsettlement and continuous support of her partners’ and friends’ literary work, have provided grounds for imagining and exploring the processes of emancipation and choice at play within artistic practice.
Explicitly referring to the pro-abortion movement and to the very idea of choice, Pro-Choice is a statement, or a mantra. It wishes to absorb and reflect the myriad of strategies artists can choose to make and create work from, to show how these choices generate meaning and how artists are bound to these meanings.
