Exhibiting artist Macon Reed discusses their work, Eulogy for the Dyke Bar, an immersive installation that revisits the legacy of lesbian and dyke bars. Together with artist and researcher, Jade Muratore, they will discuss the circumstances which have seen the closure of dyke bars globally and delve into the stories behind archival material included in the installation from lesbian parties, spaces and events gone by.

Macon Reed is a New York-based artist working in sculpture, installation, video, radio documentary, painting, and participatory projects. Motivated by evolving queer and intersectional feminist frameworks, their practice involves creating immersive sculptural environments that serve as public sites for dynamic inter-community conversation and transformative ritual. Her recent work includes the installation Eulogy For The Dyke Bar 2015, which revisits the legacy of dyke and lesbian bars, and has been exhibited at Wayfarers Gallery, New York; Pulse Art Fair, New York; AREA Gallery, Portland; CCA Wattis Institute, San Francisco; and the Museum of Craft and Design, San Francisco. 

Jade Muratore is an artist, researcher and cultural producer working across performance, installation, and video. Jade is one of the founding and core members of the performance trio, Hissy Fit, and has exhibited works at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Performance Space, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Arts House, Campbelltown Arts Centre and Carriageworks. She is a PhD candidate at UNSW Art & Design completing a practice-based research project on temporally disruptive methodologies in contemporary performance and moving image practice.

This conversation is part of ‘Forms of Being Together’, a series of online talks, performances and actions presented alongside the exhibition ‘Friendship as a Way of Life’ at UNSW Galleries.
