Co-curator of the exhibition, Paola Balla, will be joining academic and researcher Anne Marsh and Melbourne-based artists Atong Atem and Emily Floyd in a multi-faceted conversation tracing the history and future of feminism in contemporary times. The discussion will touch on the incredibly diverse range of feminist art practices in Australia, as well as emerging theories and concerns.
