‘Feminist Identities and Contemporary Art’ is an afternoon of conversation and critique with Sydney-based artists and curators working within feminist discourse and identity politics. In an era of commodified feminism, Women in the Arts brings you rich critical debate.

Writer Kelly Azizi will be in conversation with feminist-identifying panelists about their feminism and how this informs the way they navigate the art world and negotiate their own practice.

This will be an occasion for meaningful critical engagement with feminism specific to Sydney, as well as a unique opportunity to draw on the strength and particular experiences of different kinds of feminist movements, generations, and communities.
