Organised by CREAM (the Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media at the University of Westminster) this two-day conference explores the live and performance-based arts, sound and moving image practices that were an integral part of feminist creative and campaigning activities of the 1970s and 1980s.
Part of the Through a Radical Lens events series accompanying the Women in Revolt! exhibition at Tate Britain, the conference brings together presentations from an international array of researchers and artists in response to an open call, alongside workshops and roundtable discussion.
Speakers will discuss themes related to collaborative making, archive and publication formation, the links between performance and protest, and movements beyond the UK, to consider how activist approaches continue to resonate in contemporary feminism.
The full programme will be announced in February 2024.
This event is organised by CREAM (Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media,) at the University of Westminster with funding from the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art. The conference is co-ordinated in association with Tate Curation, with additional contributions by Chelsea Space, University of the Arts London. With thanks to the conference advisory committee for their further invaluable support.
