Allyson Mitchell, Brain Child 2008 (detail)
8 Sep 2018 – 10 Nov 2018

In the role of Ms. Kitty, Julie Hollenbach inhabits a domestic “set” decorated wi th works that incorporate aspects of hobby craft and/or declarations of gender-variant identity. Ms. Kitty presents herself as a femme leisure crafter whose interest in home renovation devolves into identity reconstruction. The works in her living room are by Shary Boyle, Emily Davidson, Allyson Mitchell, local zine artists and others. Over the course of the exhibition, Ms. Kitty holds teas, screenings and leisure-crafting sessions attended and led by the artists whose work graces her walls and cabinets.
