Great Movements of Feeling

A NETS Victoria touring exhibition

Zara Sigglekow

Opening and Curator’s Floor Talk
6pm, Thursday 7 May

Great Movements of Feeling is a multi-disciplinary project that explores emotion as a cognitive and bodily force. Originally developed for the 2018 Next Wave Festival through the Gertrude Contemporary Emerging Curators Program, the exhibition considers emotion through personal and historical lenses; as a flowing drive that occurs between people, concepts and objects. This structure brings together the two ‘camps’ of emotion theory: emotion as primarily tied to bodily sensations, and emotion as thought. The works in this exhibition inhabit facets of affect congealing at different points on this spectrum: sometimes weighted towards a bodily sensation, at other times towards a cognitive judgment, or somewhere in between.
