Now in its second year, this Australian Research Council Project Women*, Art and Feminism in Australia since 1970 led by Professor Anne Marsh, documents the historical legacy and ongoing critical relevance of feminism in contemporary Australian art.
Engaging through nation-wide workshops, a curated residency program and a keynote symposium, the process is designed to give voice to complex positions, highlighting different interpretations rather than a unified point of view.
Revealing the roles and interactions between gender, race, class and ethnicity, the project will combine the source material collected with scholarly methodologies to provide a diverse and noisy cultural picture of Australia, women and feminist practices within visual art.
The symposium, Women, Art and Feminism in Australia since 1970 and the Residency program Doing Feminism/Sharing the world run concurrently with ACCA’s Unfinished Business, a major exhibition focussing on contemporary feminist art practice.
