Using the “filing cabinet” as a metaphor for a feminist archive and archiving practices, this art exhibit unpacks the body as a locale for underrepresented personal and collective histories. It decisively presents a challenge to official archives by elevating the agency of women, queer, and non-binary artists in narrating their own stories from places of localized knowledge. In doing so, it signifies the female body as a worked surface that can be worked again in the present and future.
Room 1C03, University of Winnipeg
