BRICALEUR-ing: An inquiry into the profundity & resourcefulness of Female Transformateurs
During this March all-lady art show, curated by Sarah Paulsen and Lyndsey Scott, the Fort Gondo gallery space will also serve as a creative laboratory-- hosting a sound portal, movie night, womens’ circle, and workshop for a Cherokee Street public art installation …. All powered by community connection and female ingenuity.
A *bricaleur* “describes the style of approach exemplified by a tinkerer or a jack of all trades... comfortable in unfamiliar realms of learning and experience because they learn best by using indirect connections to known information… They try things out until they figure out how to do something.” We celebrate the way women gather, nurture, and shape space!
