FEMMO
Elvis Richardson and Virginia Fraser

2014

Curating Feminism : Sydney College of the Arts Galleries

Benglis 73/74 Curated by Geoff Newton, Sutton Project Space

Re-Raising Conciousness curated by Katherine Hattam, Harriet Morgan, Fayen d’Evie, TCB Melbourne

The artists Elvis Richardson and Virginia Fraser have adopted a curatorial pose to collaborate on a series of magazine covers, combining portraiture with attention-seeking headlines for a so-far fictional publication FEMMO™. Where other curators might select, arrange and present tangible and digital objects in galleries, the editors of FEMMO™ have organised indexical text objects on a (very big) page. FEMMO™ promises articles its producers would like to read. FEMMO™ imagines a world where feminism is central to, and informs, every topic. In particular FEMMO™ has fun with the art-world’s gender biased status-quo.

The National Library of Australia declined to issue FEMMO™ with an International Standard Serial Number because it had “no content”. FEMMO™ disagrees. FEMMO™ is joining the surface litter of Australian art history.
