feelingFeelings featured performative, time-based and site-specific artworks examining the significance of affect in contemporary culture. Participating artists included Barb Choit, Megan Cotts, Mariechen Danz, Ian James, Andrea Merkx, Julie Orser, Matthew Siegle, Clarissa Tossin and Brica Wilcox.
feelingFeelings framed affect as a means to investigate the immediacy of emotive response to cultural production. The exhibition created a space in which to reconsider the manipulation of feeling on the scale of the personal and the social. Employing a range of strategies, the works address the territory of affect through explorations of Hollywood cinema, religious reverie, pop music, pharmaceuticals and historical monuments.
