Future Feminist Archive Report

The Cross Art Projects | 17-Apr-2016
Future Feminist Archive Report makes the project's findings and speculations physically present. The FFA print set and web publication is being collated during the exhibition as reports come in. At the end of the exhibition, the Future Feminist Archive Print Folio will be distributed to the participating archives and institutions. The project references and respects our commitment to feminism as a major art movement, a curatorial method and a force for change. These diverse archives reveal extraordinary women such as Pearl Gambanyi Gibbs, Dolly Potter and artist Vivienne Binns and their cultural and human rights monuments: the Aborigines Progressive Association (APA); the Miners' Women's Auxiliaries (wages and conditions); Binns's Full Flight art caravan and the founding of the NSW regional galleries in the early 1980s; Joan Kerr's National Women's Art Project (1995) and today's infamous craftivists the Knitting Nannas. The struggle continues / La Lucha Continua.
