The Alliance Française invites you to come and discover Tamsin Green’s exhibition called ‘Detraction’ .
Tamsin Green’s work characterizes the concept of femininity in the history of art and theory, where women are often under represented for their art and literary skills.
‘Detraction’ is a response to Marcel Duchamp’s artwork entitled ‘Large Glass’ (The Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors. Even). Duchamp’s freestanding glass construction built in 1923 depicts the erotic encounter between a “bride” and her ten “bachelors”.
The exhibition will take place 28 June- 28 July at the Alliance Francaise Eildon Gallery, 51 Grey Street, St Kilda. A special talk by the artist will be held on Saturday 1 July at 4pm.
