Surveying the diverse scope of feminist art practices – including painting, performance, photography and film to community engagement and cultural activism – the exhibition focuses upon the dynamic formal invention and social engagement of feminist artists.

It explores strategies and analyses of gender identity and representation, intersectional politics, and practices which embrace performative codes, text and media technologies, humour and critique.

Asking why feminism is still relevant, necessary and critical, Unfinished Business explores trans-generational legacies, inheritances and shifts, alongside contemporary conditions and concerns – to stimulate new debates and discussions around the ‘unfinished business’ of feminism today.
