7 to 8 December 2023
Tickets £20 for both days, exhibition ticket included
Frobisher Auditorium 2, Barbican Centre
A collaboration between Paul Mellon Centre and the Barbican, this multi-day symposium uses the themes of the RE/SISTERS exhibition to explore the bonds between gender and environmental justice.
The symposium is interested in the intersections of ongoing colonial histories and feminist and queer ecologies. Bringing together artists, scholars and curators, the symposium will explore how women, gender non-conforming and marginalised communities are often placed at the forefront of advocating and caring for the planet, and more broadly how womanist politics have consistently resisted the mechanical, patriarchal order that is organised around the exploitation of natural resources and the oppression of ‘othered’ bodies.
