The hope is that we might all be better equipped to bear the inconvenience of each other’s necessary proximity. That in bearing such close relations we might rethink the power of our relationality.” 

                                                 -On the Inconvenience of Other People, Lauren Berlant 

As part of our permanent exhibition VISIBLE/INVISIBLE: Representation of Women in Art through the MAP Collection, we are in the process of building a Feminist Library at the museum. 

Currently, the library features a range of feminist literature that help locate the experiences of women and gender minorities – documenting feminisms that are accessible and intersectional. As part of our Women’s Day celebrations, MAP invites you to browse through the collection and share your thoughts, favourite excerpts, other texts you’d like to see as part of this library and more. 

The library space will be open from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. So drop in, come say hi, pick a text and let’s read!

Texts featured include:

Gendering Caste Through a Feminist Lens – Uma Chakravarti
Women Painting Women – Andrea Karnes
Staying with the Trouble – Donna J Haraway
Living a Feminist Life – Sara Ahmed
