In conjunction with Faith Wilding and Kate Davis’ two-woman exhibition project, The Long Loch: How Do We Go On From Here?, commissioned by the Centre for Contemporary Arts. Glasgow, for Glasgow International 2010, both artists have invited a wide range of co-inspiritors to select up to three starting points for feminist lines of flight in art and politics for discussion and feasting on.
These suggestions, whether texts, audio/video, film clips, or images, seek to explore the question of how we have gone on, how we go on now, and how we dream/desire to go on in the future in response to a feminist heritage. They will be available as both an online resource by the end of Nov 2009 and in physical form to pore through at the CCA, in a resource area Wilding and Davis are collaborating on with Glasgow Women’s Library, for The Long Loch: How Do We Go On From Here? April 2010.
Read-Out! Read-In! Feminist Lines of Flight in Art and Politics will provide a catalyst for a network of reading groups, initiated by Wilding and Davis and advertised through this page and The Long Loch: How Do We Go On From Here? mailing list. Please add your details to the CCA mailing list to be sent the e-mail updates.
Wilding and Davis are delighted to be launching the project with their first reading group led by Dr Jane Goldman and hosted by Glasgow Women’s Library, focusing on her starting points for feminist lines of flight which are:
Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own (1929)

Virginia Woolf, Thoughts on Peace in an Air Raid (1940)
