Queer [Feminist] Art
Vela, Victoriagade 2-4, Copenhagen
Thursday September 19, 2013 at 7pm.
Salon Indigo presents emerging visual artist Henriette Hellstern-Kjøller, who will talk about the theme of ‘queer art’ – especially queer feminist art – as a personal as well as professional praxis. Henriette will share her thoughts on this controvercial topic and present some of her own works.
Henriette Hellstern-Kjøller (b. 1979) works with performance / video and paintings. She has exhibited her works in San Francisco, Torino, Hamburg, Schwitzerland, among other places and was awarded the prize for Outstanding Work at the Baltic Pride in Tallinn, Estonia in 2011.
By Henriette’s side in the other bar stool at Vela in Copenhagen is Birthe Havmoeller (b. 1962). Birthe is a visual artist and the editor of Feminine Moments, an international queer feminist art resource site and art blog presenting works by lesbian, bisexual and queer women artists. Birthe will talk about Feminine Moments as a platform for queer feminist artists, and about her photography based art projects.
