Event: f generation

f generation: feminism, art, progressions is a collaborative platform for exploring feminism in contemporary art.

2015 marks 40 years since International Women’s Year in 1975. During that year key feminist art events took place at George Paton Gallery, University of Melbourne Student Union. These included a pivotal lecture by renowned international artist and theorist Lucy Lippard and the formation of key feminist resources such as Lip magazine and the Women’s Art Register, still in operation in Melbourne today.
