01 February – 18 February: You Kick Like a Girl: women in football


Opening Thursday 1st February, 6-8pm

red gallery: 157 St Georges Rd, Fitzroy North, Victoria, 3068

This year, there is more at play than a bunch of Sheilas with a weird ball.

red gallery’s biennial football group show celebrates the exciting recent conjunction of our great game and gender equality.

Footballers’ WAGS, trophy beards, Auskickers, elite athletes, commentators, survivors, club presidents, meat in the ‘bun’; upstarts, school girls, grannies, trannies, legends…

Artists engage with girls and the playing field in You Kick Like a Girl: a celebration of football and women… about bloody time.
