1973: Reflections on ‘Working in Public’

18:00 on 2 February 2017
Glasgow Women's Library

Book now

Influential feminist artist Suzanne Lacy visited Scotland in 2007. She was involved in a formal process of reflection on the Oakland Projects, California (1990 to 2000). Sixteen artists, theorists and curators engaged with culture and policy were invited to form an intense, unique learning space, ‘Working in Public’, curated by Lacy. Records of this gathering, found in the Janice Parker collection, are the starting point of a discussion between Janice, Adele Patrick (GWL) and other ‘Working in Public’ participants about creative legacies, and feminist archiving as Janice reflects on her own practice and Glasgow Women’s Library marks its 25th anniversary.

This event is for 16+ and open to all. It is free to attend. Please book via the GWL website (you will be taken through the shopping cart but no charge will be made) or you can call us on 0141 550 2267.
