Location: Towner Eastbourne

A discussion event addressing the gender imbalance in collections and archives.
Women and non-binary artists are represented in public collections, but in small proportion and their stories often remain hidden. Much work is being done to redress underrepresentation in collections. We acknowledge this discussion event will not address all the absences in our public collections but that it will contribute to wider conversation and action. This event brings together artists, curators, art historians, and interested groups and individuals for a day of presentations and open discussion. A welcoming space to explore gender imbalance from a range of perspectives, focusing on the visibility of women artists in public collections and archives.

The Discussion Day also provides an opportunity for us to launch our new publication on Kathleen Walne after our residency and research period at the Towner. The publication will include contributions from Jennifer Higgie, Rebecca Fortnum, Emma Roodhouse, Karen Taylor and more. The publication is included in the Discussion Day ticket price.

Booking essential
Ticket £14, concession £10 (includes the exhibitions and an Obscure Secure publication)
