Feminist Perspectives 2 - MAY GN

Welcome to The Blasted Tree's Feminist Perspectives, a six-part online series on the topic of (you guessed it) feminism! Our second part, written by Calgary-based artist and poet MAY GN, certainly looks like a poem, but the piece goes well beyond its form in speaking to contemporary feminism. KNOWN FEMINIST DEALINGS draws upon the work of conceptual artist Jenny Holzer to interrogate how feminism is experienced and displayed in public spaces, and we are very excited to be exhibiting it here, in a space both digital and public.


If you're new to this series, we recommend beginning with the Forward by co-editor Bea Keeler as a quick way to familiarize yourself with the issues and with the general approach we've taken in curating this collection.
