Event Description

The Museum of Art & Photography invites you to its first annual conference in conjunction with the three-year-long, inaugural exhibition at MAP, VISIBLE/INVISIBLE: Representation of Women in Art through the MAP Collection. The conference, Beyond Theory: Mapping Feminist Practices in the Contemporary, picks up on themes of the exhibition and expands upon them by moving back in time and simultaneously taking stock of how the sector is being shaped in the contemporary moment. We aim to bring forth, re-look and re-question, and thereby reorient existing frameworks that surround discourses on gender identities and gendered politics within creative practices. The aim is to also address the need to re-evaluate questions of power and how power operates within gendered relations especially for and within the broader cultural sector. The formats include panel discussions, artists’ presentations, and conversations, concluding with a performance. We hope that the conference becomes a space where prevalent ideas are challenged, new networks are formed and lastly, present the convening as a space to find common ground.
