Deirdre Logue and Allyson Mitchell share a collaborative maximalist art and life practice that includes art production, exhibition and activism.
Recently Logue and Mitchell presented Killjoy's Kastle: A Lesbian Feminist Haunted House (Toronto, London, Los Angeles) this large scale installation/performance is a nightmarish vision of feminist terror where visitors are encouraged to engage in dialogue about contemporary queer politics. Logue and Mitchell also collaborate on video installations that put radical feminist texts in productive conversation with contemporary queer theory using puppets, cats and paper mache tactics.
Together they operate the F.A.G Feminist Art Gallery out of their backyard in Toronto Canada since 2010.
Both artists have extensive solo practices including sculpture, music, film, video and performance that have exhibited internationally. Mitchell works as an Associate Professor in the School of Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies at York University and Logue is currently the Development Director at Vtape.
