The 1970s saw the rise of second-wave feminism, with challenges to the dominant art historical narrative of ‘woman as object’ and ‘man as viewer and artist’.

This panel discussion explores the ways in which female artists from the late 1960s to the present day have demanded space for the female voice and body, creating new forms and dialogues, and changing the traditional structures of the art world.

Chaired by Kirsty Lang, the panel features Exhibition Project Curator Catherine Daunt, British Museum, and Griselda Pollock, Professor of Social and Critical Histories of Art and Director of the Centre for Cultural Analysis, Theory and History, University of Leeds.

Presented as part of HeForShe Arts Week.
