In 2012 Sydney based artist Kelly Doley initiated The Learning Centre: Two Feminists, a project whereby she invited 16 participants from a range of backgrounds to teach her about feminism. Doley then condensed this knowledge from an eclectic range of sources into a series of catch phrases and slogans. Utilising the tropes, clichés and didactic nature of the political poster, the slogans are a tongue in cheek barrage of historical facts, mottos and phrases. Grouped together they make up a type of hobbled together archive of feminist thought, predictions and histories. This project transforms the live moment between artist and participant into over 90 political posters that make up this exhibition.
