This exhibition emerges from the recently published book Viewing Pleasure and Being A Showgirl, How Do I Look? by Alison J Carr. In the book, Carr contextualises showgirl experiences, framing their relevance for contemporary feminism as well as artists and performers. Accessibly written, the book interprets a range of live performances to develop a bold, original approach to bodily display and pleasure. The book’s conclusion, ‘Showgirl Manifesto’, forms the inspiration for this exhibition. Presented on the wall of the Market Gallery, the affirmative text presents the sisterly connections between viewer and performer.
