Conference – Resist, Persist: Gender, Climate and Colonialism

RE/SISTERS Public Programme

Laura Aguilar, Nature Self-Portrait #5, 1996 © Laura Aguilar Trust of 2016

A collaboration with the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, this multi-day symposium uses the themes of RE/SISTERS to explore the bonds between gender and environmental justice. 

Bringing together artists, scholars and curators, the symposium will explore how women, gender non-conforming and marginalised communities are often placed at the forefront of advocating and caring for the planet, and more broadly how womanist politics have consistently resisted the mechanical, patriarchal order that is organised around the exploitation of natural resources and the oppression of ‘othered’ bodies.

Keynote speakers include Prof Astrida Neimanis.

Each ticket includes entry to the conference on 7 & 8 Dec as well as exhibition entry.
