Public Talk with Eve Fowler




Public Talk with Eve Fowler
When | Wednesday 8 April, 6pm
Location | Artspace, Ground Floor



Please join us tomorrow night from 6pm for a talk with Eve Fowler, the inaugural artist to present work in our new Ideas Platform. Fowler will discuss her practice – including photography, collage and her wrapped lesbian library – as well as the latest letterpress and screen print works that pay homage to queer writers and Gertrude Stein in particular. Fowler will also discuss Artist Curated Projects, a space she runs out of her apartment in Hollywood to exhibit the work of other artists. The event will also include readings from Gertrude Stein texts by Casey Legler, Diana Smith, Mikala Dwyer, Deborah Kelly and others, and Fowler's new series of limited-edition prints made with the assistance of UNSW Art & Design will be available to purchase from the artist.

Fowler often works poetically with text and sign writing on posters, billboards and bus stops, infiltrating public space in interesting, open-ended and spontaneous ways. She has a forthcoming exhibition at Mier Gallery in Los Angeles and has held solo exhibitions at Horton Gallery, New York; Thomas Solomon Gallery, Los Angeles; and Julie Saul Gallery, New York. She has participated in group exhibitions at MoMA, New York; SF MOMA; The New Museum Tulane University Art Gallery, New Orleans; Leo Koenig Inc. Projekte, New York; New Langton Arts, San Francisco; and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco. From 2013 to 2015 her work was part of the billboard project, Manifest Destiny, organised by LAND. Fowler’s book Anyone Telling Anything Is Telling That Thing was published by Printed Matter in 2013 and her second book, Hustlers, was published by Capricious in 2014. Fowler is co­founder of Artist Curated Projects in Los Angeles.
