Event description

Description

As part of the festival, and in collaboration with the Australian Institute of Art History, the FRAN Festival will hold a 2-day symposium on the 16 –17 September at the Art Gallery of South Australia. The symposium will bring local, national and international feminist artists and writers together to explore issues relevant to the histories and contemporary practice of women’s art.


Via panel sessions and conversational formats the symposium will cover topics such as the following; the archival turn in contemporary feminist art practice, feminist curating and collaborative ventures, feminist genealogies, gender equality and diversity and career issues for today's women artists. An important aspect of the symposium will be to investigate the legacy of The Women's Show as well as other Adelaide or regional-based feminist initiatives. The second day of the symposium will focus on gender and the museum and will include sessions with women curators, collectors, dealers and philanthropists.


The symposium is free although there will be a registration process.
