Vote For Me is a national multi-venue feminist exhibition that engages with ideas of self-promotion in contemporary visual arts practice and considers the nature of women’s practice as holding up a collective presence as opposed to the heroism of the lone artist. The statistical position of women in art is a platform to think about self-promotion as an articulation or position responding to women in the hierarchy of art.

The exhibition invites artists to respond to ideas of self-aggrandisement, vulnerability, discomfort with self-advancement and ways of measuring of success. The exhibition will show across Adelaide artist-run-initiatives Fontanelle Gallery, FELTspace and Format Gallery, and is facilitated by curatorial team, POWERHOUSE: Kate Power & Brigid Noone.
