Mimosa House presents the second chapter of transfeminisms, a major survey touring exhibition, that brings to light a multiplicity of urgent, pressing and ongoing issues faced by women, queer and trans people across the globe. The second chapter (15 May—29 June 2024) will feature works by Chiara Fumai, Martine Gutierrez, Juliana Huxtable, Jesse Jones, Josèfa Ntjam and Naomi Rincón Gallardo.

Unfolding over five chapters, transfeminisms outlines strategies of resistance through propositions of collective action, care and radical imagination, in order to generate a more equitable future. The exhibition explores the lineage of feminist art practices by facilitating dialogue between emerging and more established artists.

The title transfeminisms is deliberately provocative. The prefix “trans” implies ‘across, beyond, through, on the other side of’; while the ‘s’ in ‘feminisms’ recognises the innumerable definitions of feminism worldwide. Our intention is for transfeminisms to be understood within an inclusive and decolonial context – one that takes us across feminisms and encompasses various ‘trans’ possibilities.

The second chapter's artists re-envision canons and icons of the past through a prism of dystopian futurism, feminist, and queer empowerment. They engage with questions of religion and ritual, mythology and conspiracy, subverting conventional views. Futures here are reimagined beyond gender, race, religion, and patriarchy in an attempt to challenge collective consciousness.
