Art and Change: Art and Feminism
Feminism has been a powerful force for change over the course of the last century, confronting inequality and changing the landscape of societies around the world. In the 1970s it surged into the art world, with the feminist art movement of the time challenging prevailing attitudes and assumptions.
Host Jane Montgomery Griffiths speaks to Mish Grigor, Juliana Engberg, Emily Floyd and Atlanta Eke about the ideas that drive their art and give voice to their passion for creating change. What is the future for feminist art? How can creativity generate real shifts in the structure of our society?
Presented in partnership with Melbourne Festival.
