Lacis is defined by a chain mail pattern of participation that emphasizes an ethos of community, collaboration and mentorship. The exhibition was enkindled by Claire Bartleman, who tasked herself with inviting women from her immediate art community to exhibit alongside her in an effort to visualize the unofficial networks of collaboration, support and mentorship that she sees between her female peers. Each willing participant subsequently invited another, who invited another, and so forth. What results is a collection of works that are linked by relationships rather than aesthetics or content. Consequently, dialogues between the works reflect individual relationships and simultaneously create broader collective narratives. Informed by feminism and personal experience this process-based exhibition highlights the value of fellowship to professional practice.

Organized by: Claire Bartleman

In collaboration with: Rosalind Breen, Dawne Carleton, Nicole Collins, Anne Hartley, Kristy Holmes, Erin Loree, Katharine Mulherin, Kirsty Robertson, Stacey Sproule, Beth Stuart, Erin Stump and Wendy Weaver
