Description from Art History Festival 2021:
"This illustrated talk will explore the notion of the ‘artist as activist’ through the lens of Northern Ireland’s national collection of art. Primarily focusing on women artists and their crucial role in art history as champions for change and resistance, there will be an opportunity to reflect on artists of the past and how their quiet activism, which may not seem revolutionary to us today, was certainly subversive in their time.
Curator of Art, Anna Liesching will share examples both focused on changing the art world itself, and works that link directly to wider global causes. She will then reflect on present day practice and the work of artists that directly relate to current issues in the north of Ireland today."
