This Study Day begins with a tour of the exhibition Still I Rise: Feminisms, Gender, Resistance, Act 2, led by Rosie Cooper, Head of Exhibitions at De la Warr Pavilion and co-curator of the exhibition. She will be focussing on specific works but will also be voicing some of the issues that the exhibition raises in our understanding of feminism(s), gender and technology.

D-M Withers will give a presentation titled ‘Trans-Mission: How Feminism Travels Across Time and Space’, which will raise some critical questions and provide a context for the exhibition and our discussion in the second part of the day.

Following lunch, Rosie Cooper will have a conversation with Tai Shani, one of the artists included in the exhibition. A roundtable discussion will follow on the potential of feminist thinking to re-shape institutional practice with Tara Londi, curator of the exhibition ‘Mademoiselle’ at CRAC Occitanie, France and Daria Khan, director of Mimosa House, London. The discussion will be moderated by Phoebe Cripps, assistant curator at the De La Warr Pavillion and Vassilios Doupas, curator of programmes at Contemporary Art Society.
