Women in Revolt! Mini-series: 4. “We need to change the course!”

In these next two episodes, curator Linsey Young hears from women activists and artists of colour about their experiences and work in the 1970s and 80s.

In this episode, she learns about how women mobilised against racism and discrimination, and how artists challenged how art history was being taught. 

From involving lecturers in performances that challenged the Euro-centricity of art history to creating installations celebrating women artists of colour, they demanded greater visibility and opened up conversations about race, gender and colonialism in art.

Featuring Nina Edge, Stella Dadzie, Sutapa Biswas and Marlene Smith.
