Bridie Connell is a Sydney born and based visual artist interested in representations of women and femininity in art and popular culture. Her inspiration ranges from holy cards and showgirls to 70s craft journals, dirty realism and dirty rock stars. An Honours graduate from the UNSW College of Fine Arts, she has exhibited in numerous group exhibition, participated in the inaugural season of Free Fall and was recently nominated for Best Visual Artist in the 2011 FBi radio SMAC Awards.

A trained go-go dancer she performs regularly and as a member of dance troupe The Go-Gettes and her fourth solo exhibition, King’s Cross Affair, held at Alaska Projects paid homage to the forgotten go-go dancers of Sydney’s Kings Cross. Fusing 60s psychedelia and Catholic iconography with a touch of red light sleaze her project for Free Fall 2012 will bring the spirit of late 60s Kings Cross to 2012 Darlinghurst, transforming the OAF cube with a shrine-like installation and live go-go dancing performances.
