Where? Carpark under Westpac Bank, 89-91 Boundary Street, West End.
This Tuesday night, join local art thinkers Nicola Scott, Aleea Monsour and Tara Heffernan in a discussion on feminism in art and theatre, and revisionist art histories.
Nicola Scott is an arts writer and former producer of the nationally-distributed No Brow Art Show based in Brisbane at 4zzz. She is currently researching prior to commencing a Phd. She completed an Honours degree at the Queensland College of Art, Griffith Uni , and is particularly interested in institutional critique, feminist theory, and the relationship between capitalism, power and subjectivity. She will speak about “Revisionist histories: Feminism and contemporary Australian art.”
Tara Heffernan is an artist and art theorist based in Brisbane. She studies philosophy and art theory, and is a raging feminist.
Aleea Monsour is a performer, designer, collaborator, aspiring director and community theatre practitioner.She is currently undertaking an Honours project, creating an original verbatim theatre piece based on personal interviews conducted with Palestinian women who have immigrated to Brisbane. In this presentation, Aleea will explore the agency of art and theatre to create personal and communal change through the perspective of voice and stories of women, considering theatrical and oral history as a research methodology in order to create a space for marginalised voices.
As usual, all are welcome to join in the conversation.
