FAST FORWARD: HOW DO WOMEN WORK?

1 December 2019, 10.30–18.00
2 December 2019, 10.30–14.00

Please join our conference to discuss how the framing of photographic practice can be reimagined. Following two inspiring international conferences about the role of Women Photographers, held at Tate Modern in 2015 and National Gallery of Art in Lithuania in 2017, we are holding the third conference at Tate Modern. Through a mix of call for papers and invited speakers, this public event aims to bring together key voices from across the globe to explore and identify critical themes and issues pertinent to how women work as photographers in the 20th and 21st century and recognising their contributions to the medium’s history. We will explore a wide range of working practices both historical and contemporary, addressing key themes in current photography research and celebrating important works.

The key themes are:

  • Sharing the Self and Others
  • In and Out of the Museum
  • Connected Practices
  • Global Stories
  • How do Women Work?
