New Contemporaries and the Art Fund present a symposium bringing together New Contemporary alumni artists with writers and curators to address the challenges facing emerging artists working in the UK today.
On the final day of exhibition 47 of 50 at fig-2, join us for an informal talk with the artists Allison Katz or a member of the curatorial team. This short talk aims to provide you with further insight into exhibiting at fig-2 and the artists' current projects.
Speakers from the fields of art, activism, academia and journalism reflect on feminist efforts to transform the work of love and care, including historical struggles over housework and the wage, issues of migrant domestic labour and alternative potential models of collective care.
A leading experimental filmmaker from Italy in the 1960s and 1970s, Marinella Pirelli’s 16mm film explorations of light and movement remained wrapped up in a dark basement for over forty years and have only recently been publicly exhibited again.
Art flows, money flows, life flows. This symposium asks how these flows sustain or oppose each other and whether art can capture the axiomatics that bind these conjunctive and opposing forces together.
This talk considers some of the ethics and responsibilities of researching, archiving, curating, restaging, marketing and collecting women’s art, and the extent to which these activities combat its historical erasure. It asks which aspects of art by women are gaining visibility, and which are still unfashionable—or even troubling—today.
