Art-practices and visual research strategies that challenge affective and emotional dimensions of race, sexuality and gender-constructs in art and society.
Visualising Affect is an exhibition that explores art-practices and visual research strategies that consider and challenge the affective and emotional dimensions of race, sexuality and gender-constructs in art and society.
The production of the exhibition is linked to the IVSA Conference panel on ‘Visualizing Affect and Emotion – race, gender and sexuality’ that reviews the increased focus on attending to affect in understanding and theorizing the social. Visualising Affect, the exhibition responds to the challenge and potential of the power of affect and emotions through looking at the ways in which practitioners tackle and present individual and collective emotional responses to the embodied experience of race, gender and sexuality.
