Lips Painted Red is a project examining how female identities are created and maintained as daily routines, as experiments with personal or social lifestyles, as consequences of discomfort with gender expectations or with gender displacement. It examines these strategies through a variety of artists’ approaches—male and female, transgender, and of several generations—and through texts written by scholars for the forthcoming catalogue.
Lips Painted Red is formed as a set of three exhibitions taking place at both of Trondheim Kunstmuseum’s venues, TKM Bispegata and TKM Gråmølna. The separate exhibition of pioneering Peruvian conceptualist Teresa Burga’s work is a first presentation of her in Scandinavia, after the general survey at the Instituto Cultural Peruano Norteamericano in Lima 2010 and the succeeding exhibition at the Westfälischer Kunstverein.Read more
