What is the position for women today in art history? Has gender inequality been banished from museums along with racism, or do we need an expanded feminist critique?
To mark the launch of the new edition of Parker and Pollock’s classic ‘Old Mistresses: Women, Art and Ideology‘ (1981), this study day chaired by Griselda Pollock will create a forum for debate between curators, artists and scholars about the current state of affairs in the art world. Speakers at this event include Margareta Gynning, Lubaina Himid, Ella Mills, Minna Moore Ede, Ruth Noack, Ingrid Pollard, Griselda Pollock, Nina Power and Joanne Rhymer.
