International Women’s Day 2019: feminist time
Saturday 2 March - Monday 11 March 2019
Royal Academy of Arts
Various events, booking required.
To mark International Women’s Day, the Royal Academy of Arts is presenting a programme of events that explore the notion of reframing art history to include feminist time.
What is feminist time? How have scholars, activists and artists interrogated the concept of time to overturn hegemonic narratives of art history? What can challenging and reimagining history do for future artists? How can we collect and curate women’s art?
Join us as we reimagine women’s art histories through the eyes of postcolonial feminist scholar Griselda Pollock and activist, artist and punk musician Liv Wynter; discuss the state of the art world for women with Rose Wylie RA; and tune in to new music inspired by women and femme-identifying artists, past and present, in our In Tune series. Through 10 days of discussion, musical performance, talks, workshops and tours, we will explore these essential questions and look to an art world that includes feminist time.
Daily heritage tours
Discover the art and history of the Royal Academy during these free 30-minute tours of Burlington Gardens and Burlington House in celebration of International Women’s Day.
Join us for this special in conversation with Rose Wylie and Francis Morris. The pair will discuss how Wylie has navigated an often male dominated field, paving the way for women artists of the future. They will also talk about the progression and state of the art world for women since Wylie became a practising artist.
