About this event

Thursday November 25th 2021, 2-5pm: International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women – join us at DJCAD (online) to commemorate this important event through the lens of art history.

This important date was established by the United Nations, an occasion for governments, international organizations and non-governmental organizations to raise public awareness of violence against women.

Presented by In-GEAR at DJCAD, we are delighted to welcome two keynote speakers:

Dr Catherine McCormack, Art Historian and Lecturer at Sotheby’s Institute of Art (London), and the author of the much-anticipated new art history book Women in the Picture (Icon Books 2021);

and award-winning artist and Professor of Fine Art Sue Williams, University of Wales Trinity St David, who will discuss her feminist art practice in the context of both physical and non-physical violence against women in contemporary society.

Alongside our keynotes, DJCAD staff and students will discuss the subject through the lens of art history, from the paintings of Artemisia Gentileschi, Bernini, Rubens and Poussin, to the postmodern works of Kiki Smith, Nan Goldin, Kara Walker, Marina Abramovich and Margaret Harrison. Students will also present their creative responses to this important, and often hushed subject.

For further information please don't hesitate to contact Dr Helen Gorrill, hgorrill001@dundee.ac.uk
