crosseXions draws together the work of 12 early-career, Brisbane-based women and transgender artists who are inscribing feminist and environmental concerns within their art practice. This project rejects the cadaverous relationships of patriarchy and capitalism which continue to represent the world as known and conquered, and the gallery as a mausoleum for dead objects. crosseXions deploys the gallery as an incubator for living, ongoing and entangled representations of a world and a subject in active flux – involved and evolving, infected and connected, organic and alive. Developing new works by these artists, crosseXions invests in process, in bodily performance, collaborations and social engagements as renewable energies for environmental understanding.
