The artists have invited curator and educator Meghan Goodeve to chair a discussion before an audience to investigate three questions:

What is the relevance of contemporary abstraction in an art world which is focussed on image-based, issue-based and socially engaged art practice?

What, if anything, is it that women artists can bring to abstract sculpture, that is different to men?

How do we see the future of our work and of other women making abstract sculpture?
