Drawing from the strategies of feminism, science fiction, and social utopianism, Feminist Land Art Retreat’s exhibition Free Rein proposes an alternate world in which land and gender relations exist without ownership or hierarchies. To engage more deeply with these ideas, we will spend this season reading the anthology The Feminist Utopia Project: Fifty-Seven Visions of a Wildly Better Future.

Register at the Gallery or by phone at 250.377.2400. Early registration is encouraged and rewarded: the first 4 participants to register will receive a free copy of the book.

Participants will be judged on their costumes, performances and their artwork. The winner will be awarded a solo exhibition on our Open Gallery, and has the honour of taking home a magnificent trophy to display on their mantle.

Not interested in participating? Perhaps you'd rather judge? Or heckle? We need plenty of each. Free snacks and a cash bar will be available throughout the event.
