Women, Feminism and Art in Australia since 1970

Feminism has been one of the most durable political-ethical platforms of the 20th and 21st centuries – so much so that we speak of first-, second- and third-wave feminism and its impact on society and on academic scholarship throughout the world. In her illustrated talk Anne Marsh will look at contemporary art and feminism and give an overview of ‘the waves’ and the political and theoretical issues that have compelled artists and writers in the field. This is part of her new ARC Discovery project that involves various publications. Whilst in Hobart Anne hopes to make contact with artists, writers and curators who may want to contribute to the project.

Anne Marsh’s books include: Performance Ritual Document (Macmillan, 2014), LOOK:Contemporary Australian Photography, since 1980 (Macmillan, 2010), Pat Brassington: This is Not a Photograph (Quintus/University of Tasmania, 2006), The Darkroom: Photography and the Theatre of Desire (Macmillan, 2003) and Body and Self: Performance Art in Australian, 1969-1992 (Oxford University Press, 1993, Kindle edition 2015). In 2015 she curated Performance Presence/Video Time for the Australian Experimental Art Foundation and in 2017 she will coordinate a residency program titled Doing Feminism/Sharing the World at the Norma Redpath House and Studio, University of Melbourne.

Anne Marsh is a Professorial Research Fellow at the Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne.
