Feminine Moments' newsletter

May 2017

Edited by Birthe Havmoeller

Dear Reader,

Australian queer and feminist artist Deborah Kelly is in my town, Aarhus, the European Cultural Capital of 2017. Deborah Kelly is here as artist in residence at the Women's Museum (Kvindemuseet) in Aarhus, where she has open her first solo exhibition in Europe, and is running a series of workshops. (Congratulations, Deborah!)

USA's National Queer Arts Festival 2017 in California opens next week. Read about two of the queer feminist exhibitions below.  World Pride goes to Madrid, Spain this summer. Sadly, I can't find any queer feminist art exhibitions on the World Pride's cultural programme. Antwerp Queer Arts Festival (in August) is another LGBTQ event in Europe where the main exhibition is featuring works by a male artist. However, the queer feminist artists are out there. In my next newsletter I will give you an update about the must-see queer feminist exhibitions in Europe 2017.
