Curated By:
Jenna Lee Forde and Mary Tremonte

The books and reader we ( Mary Tremonte and Jenna Lee Forde ) are curating for the Xpace curated library are based on the following Theory Boner values and feminist practices:

Our Theory Boner is turned on by cultural and political theory that makes connections between feminist art and marginalized subjectivities. However, we realize that accessing cultural and political theory is a privilege. THEORY BONER ZINE is our attempt to decentralize the power and privilege that sanctifies theory in the academy by creating an opportunity for access and engagement by artists for artists. With intention, Theory Boner is about a turned on relationality; it is our desire see feminist and anti-oppressive theory become integral to artistic subjectivities. Not just a zine, but also a turned on community of artists interested in a philosophy and practice of feminist art.

The Theory Boner Curated Library selection will be launched on November 21st, 2014.
