Considering current museum policies focused on addressing gender imbalances, and thinking around the CAS Special Project Scheme Valeria Napoleone XX Contemporary Art Society (VNXXCAS), this study day will discuss feminism, female art practise and gender throughout collections, displays and exhibitions.

This day-long, conversational symposium focuses on a feminist approach to collections, displays and exhibitions, with a particular emphasis on an expanded idea of feminist technologies, encompassing ancient practices and recent digital developments. With key academics, practitioners and arts professionals, we will discuss the relationship between the close and distant past and how this can open up new ways of approaching collections and displays, the juxtaposing of different practices, the fight against historical oblivion, and the potential of feminist thought to re-shape institutional practice.

The event is open to all, with an open seminar format to discuss collaboratively current practices. We strongly recommend art professionals to bring a specific example of a recent project, acquisition, event or similar that deals with a broader concept of feminism.
