The Waves: Gender, Representation, and the Market
Saturday, 15 September 2018, 10am - 11am
Sullivan+Strumpf | Sydney
799 Elizabeth Street, Zetland
Speakers: Barbara Cleveland (artist collective), Christine Dean (artist), Angela Tiatia (artist), Julie Ewington (curator, writer & broadcaster), and Ursula Sullivan (co-director of S+S Sydney & Singapore). Moderated by Kate Britton (writer and curator).
A Countess survey of the 'Future' section of Sydney Contemporary 2017 found women accounted for only 26% of exhibiting artists. The count did not identify any trans or non-binary artists. The future is not only not female; it is cis-gendered and masculine. The panel discussion will pose a number of propositions for change, and explore how far people are really willing to go to see gender diversity in our commercial institutions, and equally in the market.
