Publication Launch | Femisphere

Launch on Friday December 15, from 5.30pm to 8.30pm
Strange Haven, Auckland

You are warmly invited to join us for the launch of the very first issue of Femisphere, a new ongoing series of publications edited by Judy Darragh & Imogen Taylor.

Femisphere is a long-term project interested in encouraging inclusivity and visibility of women*’s practices in the visual arts sector of Aotearoa. Femisphere is our attempt at presenting a structure to support diverse conversation around female* artists’ work from the past, present and future. This structure has recently commenced as a series of publications, each one showcasing responses and expressions from a rotational selection of artists.

The first group of contributors are:
Elle Loui August
Philippa Blair
Heidi Brickell
Bek Coogan
Judy Darragh
Ayesha Green
Rebecca Ann Hobbs
Claudia Jowitt
Andrea Low
Natasha Matila-Smith
Judy Millar
Ahilapalapa Rands
Rosanna Raymond
Ella Scott-Fleming
Imogen Taylor

*We believe women/woman/female/her/she to be inclusive to all variations of gender that identify with these terms/labels, whether it is in the past, present or future.

Strange Haven (used to be Rainbow Youth, across from Family bar) 281 Karangahape Road.
Publications and refreshments will be provided.

If you can’t make it to the launch and would like a copy of Femisphere, or would like to be a part of Femisphere in the future, please email
