Once you label something, you fix it in time and space. You fix it in the mind of whoever encounters that label to whatever their mind associates with that label. It is no longer something of mystery and endless possibility. Now it has has become something that, quite possibly, it is not. For that reason, or so I like to think, the current exhibition at Waterside Contemporary does not call itself a feminist exhibition. It does not even offer a press release. Just a list of artist’s names. No pat answers here. If the viewer wishes to enjoy the sense of an understanding, then the viewer will have to work for it themselves.
