Juvenilia explores works produced in the youth of a curated selection of artists, writers, songwriters and filmmakers, particularly focusing on works made by or about women who have developed into leaders within their fields. The exhibition does not necessarily set out to showcase key or seminal works by these practitioners, but rather the works which they made at the beginnings of their careers, often only discovered retrospectively as they achieved acclaim or recognition for later works and projects.
From groundbreaking performance artists and internationally acclaimed photographers to directionless New Yorkers, superheroes, big-breasted Latinas, and “exiles in Guyville”, Juvenilia examines and challenges issues relating to the position of women within contemporary art and greater society, spanning Eastern Europe, the UK, South America and the United States. The exhibition is curated by Ben Crothers and includes works by Marina Abramovic, Sarah Maple, Cindy Sherman, Gail Simone and the Guerrilla Girls.
A series of free film screenings will be shown as part of the exhibition on the following dates at 3pm:
- Sunday 28 September: Lick the Star by Sophia Coppola & Tiny Furniture by Lena Dunham
- Sunday 5 October: Kids by Larry Clark & Harmony Korine
- Sunday 12 October: Alien by Ridley Scott
All film screenings are free and will be screened in the Council Chamber, Lanyon building, opposite the Naughton Gallery.
