Join us for the book launch of Doing Feminism by contemporary art historian Anne Marsh. The launch will include the author in-conversation with artist Nasim Nasr. The publication will be available for purchase throughout the event.

Doing Feminism represents over 220 artists and groups with 370 colour illustrations punctuated by extracts from artists’ statements, curatorial writing and critique. Tracking networks of art practice, exhibitions, protest and critical thought over several generations, Marsh demonstrates the innovation and power of women’s art and the ways in which it has influenced and changed the contemporary art landscape in Australia and internationally.

Before joining the University of Melbourne, she was Professor of Art History and Theory at Monash University.
