A major Australian exhibition to examine feminist concerns in recent contemporary art, 'Unfinished Business' will ask why the movement might be of ongoing relevance and necessity.
Trans-generational legacies, inheritances and shifts will be explored alongside contemporary conditions and urgencies related to the representation of women in media and society, the perpetuation of violence against women, ideas of feminist subjectivity, and the transformative potential of intersectional identities and being.
The exhibition has been developed by ACCA's Artistic Director, Max Delany, and ACCA Curator Annika Kristensen in collaboration with a curatorium of leading Australian artists and curators including Paola Balla, Julie Ewington, Vikki McInnes and Elvis Richardson.
Adopting a collaborative, polyphonic form which encourages diverse voices, practices and debates, 'Unfinished Business' will present new commissions and recent work alongside key historical projects, programs of film and performance, and a publication with contributions by art historians, artists and theorists from the 1970s to the present.
Taking place within and beyond the gallery, 'Unfinished Business' seeks to reflect upon historical legacies, stimulate new debates, and discuss the ‘unfinished business’ of feminism today.
