Art/Discussion

We’d like to draw your attentions to two events in our programme that seek to explore the thematic questions of “Women and the Canon” through situated artistic expression.

Sara Masinaei will be presenting a photographic series that serves as the base of the interactive tour whereby she will include a brief introduction of the research she is conducting on the rationales behind the obscurity of Iranian female artists in Modernism and the factors that led to the flourishing of femininity in Contemporary Art in Iran.

A new musical work by Helen MacKinnon, to be performed on the first evening of the conference, will explore the relationship between gender voice and authority through the medium of choral composition and performance.

We’ll be running longer profiles of both Sara and Helen in future, so watch this space.
