Event description

Description

The Centre for Gender History and the Economic History Society invite you to join them for a film screening and panel discussion on feminist perspectives on women’s work. The panel will showcase multi-disciplinary perspectives on defining work, offering fresh perspectives on conceptual frameworks for thinking about what counts as economic as well as offering reflections on working as female artists. It will feature three award-winning Glasgow-based artists and film makers committed to a gender-inclusive perspective, and extracts from their films which challenge conventional concepts of work:

· Corn Sworn, winner of the Max Mara Art Prize for Women (2013-2015) whose work has featured interweaving of historical and modern themes, and has examined the relationships between motherhood and working life.

· Margaret Salmon, winner of the Max Mara Art Prize for Women (2006), whose short films including Ninna Nanna have explored the female voice - and it's work through song and speech.

· Kate Davis, winner of the Margaret Tait Award (2016-2017), whose piece Weight uses the script and structure of a 1961 BBC documentary about Barbara Hepworth to discuss unpaid, domestic labour.

This event is open to all and free to attend.
