Recovering the lost archive and imagining the new. This is an evolving project facilitated through Contemporary Art and Feminism (CAF). CAF is currently based at the University of Sydney, across disciplines of visual arts and art history, but hopes to attract participants and contributors from around Australia and internationally who represent the most dynamic and current interpretations of the links between contemporary art and feminism.
At the moment CAF and DAAO are working together to fill in the gaps of feminist art exhibitions and events between 1975- 1995. One major resource for this is Past Present: The National Women’s Art Anthology edited by Joan Kerr and Jo Holder (Craftsman House), 1999. But surely there are more resources around. This is a public project. Please feel free to join. ( Just remember to become a DAAO member first – Its free and quick.
