Bedfellows Project History:
Bedfellows is a hot-blooded research project led by artists Chloe Cooper, Phoebe Davies and Jenny Moore born from the personal, the political, and the professional. It’s about sex. Sex as education. Sex re-education.
The Bedfellows project investigates sex, sexual identity, desire, consent, and feminist porn. We ask whether, as artists trained in visual literacy, we might be able to deconstruct the dominant tropes of the image-heavy sexual landscape we are in. It’s happening all the time but it manifested itself most recently in the form of a Charismatic Megafauna gig in Deptford, an artist talk at Serpentine Gallery, a series of SEX TALK MTGs at Serpentine Gallery, Tate Britain, London, and Assembly, Portland USA, a lecture at Wimbledon College of Arts, and a radio show at Reactor Halls E15: You can’t win them all, ladies & gentlemen, Primary, Nottingham.
Bedfellows Re-education – is commissioned by Tate Schools and Teachers.
