Call for Submissions: Art and the women’s movement in the UK 1970 – 1988 | Research Group Event

Upcoming event: 10th June 2022

Art and the women’s movement in the UK 1970 – 1988 is a new British Art Network (BAN) Research Group for 2022 which is centred around research for a major new exhibition of the same topic which is forthcoming in 2023.

The network aims to widen accessibility to research around the subject area with a focus on conversations around feminist, womanist, lesbian, socialist and disability politics and experience, and activism. Our approach is trans inclusive and intersectional.

We are a group that are interested in surfacing the work of artists who have been marginalised or overlooked within patriarchal institutions and art world structures, particularly those working outside major metropolitan centres.

Across three public BAN events in 2022 we hope to engage with a wide variety of voices to explore research, test ideas, and introduce each other to artistic practice of which we might not previously have been aware.

We aim to work to a feminist methodology which we understand as creating safe spaces for conversation, ensuring presenting participants are paid, ensuring care and access needs.

Material from each meeting will be compiled in a zine which we will publish as a PDF at the end of the year. For our first event which will be held online on 10th June 2022 and we are looking for papers and practice-led contributions addressing, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Feminist Identity Politics
  • Feminist networks and sites
  • Feminist Materiality
