This First Thursdays event at Re: Jacqueline Morreau - Mythologies and the Marginalised brings together artists, speakers, and activists for a participatory discussion on radical archiving.

About

Histories/Herstories: Archiving the experiences and work of people outside of the canon.

A panel discussion with Pam Skelton, Whereisanamendieta, Cathy Courtney, and Eldi Dundee on how 'rewriting the archives' can be used to include and empower marginalised artists; and how revisiting the archives can inform, inspire, and support artistic practice.

How do we document our present, as marginalised artists?

How do we rewrite our own histories to include the important work and progress made by women and queer artists?

What is the practice of radical archiving?

The exhibition will primarily be a retrospective of Morreau’s work and life, however in order to establish a relationship between Morreau's practice and the practices of contemporary artists, we feel it would be of great interest and importance to hold a series of events in which artists, curators, writers etc., can react to and discuss the work in the exhibition in relation to their own practice. These events will be held to not only highlight the impact of Morreau’s work, but also create opportunities for other artists to directly engage with the work in a public forum.

Please join us on Thursday 7th September at Bow Arts, The Nunnery Gallery to join us in discussing, together, how to rework the canon to include the art work of women and other marginalised people.
