A “male artist” is a contradiction in terms
Saturday, 30 March 2019
1.30 – 4.30 pm
Over half a century has passed since the publication of Valerie Solanas’ SCUM Manifesto. Taking its cue from Chiara Fumai’s rendering of the radical feminist manifesto, this panel discussion attempts to unpack the complexities of being a non-male artist and the ways feminism can act as an antidote in an inherently patriarchal art system.
The panel, chaired by Eliza Gluckman, curator and deputy director of the Government Art Collection, will be invited to channel their chosen feminist artist or theorist by sharing a contribution from them, summoning the varied voices of feminism. These contributions will be the starting point for the conversation that will follow.
The panel discussion is programmed by The Ultras.
