Unfinished Business: Perspectives on art and feminism
What is feminism? What is the ‘unfinished business’ of feminism today?
Watch the exhibition video for Unfinished Business: Perspectives on art and feminism made by Art Guide Australia with ACCA to hear different artists’ perspectives on these questions. Artists in order of appearance: Ali Gumillya Baker, Salote Tawale, Natalie Thomas, Mary Featherston, Emily Floyd, Kate Just.
Surveying the diverse scope of feminist art practices – including painting, performance, photography and film to community engagement and cultural activism – Unfinished Business focuses upon the dynamic formal invention and social engagement of feminist artists. It explores strategies and analyses of gender identity and representation, intersectional politics, and practices which embrace performative codes, text and media technologies, humour and critique.
Adopting a collaborative, polyphonic form which encourages diverse voices, practices and debates, Unfinished Business presents new commissions and recent work alongside selected historical projects, programs of film and performance, and a publication with contributions by art historians, artists and theorists from the 1970s to the present.
