Do you keep thinking there must be another way is a group exhibition that addresses strategies of representation, resistance and withdrawal. Including installation, painting, performance, text and video, the exhibition considers behaviours towards, and in opposition of, presiding power structures.
Spanning across two floors of Mimosa House, Do you keep thinking there must be another waypresents historic and contemporary works that generate discussions on identity and labour. Within the works strategies for collaborative exchange are mapped out and tactics that include honesty, parody and poetry are employed.
Do you keep thinking there must be another way’s title is taken from Emma Talbot’s work 21st Century Sleepwalk (2018). In the exhibition, the title acts as a proposition to consider the ways that artists question and dismantle imposed hierarchies within professional and personal spheres. The intergenerational grouping of artists in this exhibition points to the continuing work that empowers multiple ways of living and working.
The exhibition includes a series of talks, screenings, workshops and readings that take place throughout the exhibition, including contributions by: Rose English, Karen Di Franco, Caspar Heinemann, Georgia Horgan and Jennifer Kabat.
