'Diasporic Futures: Women, the Arts and Globalization'
A one day conference to be held at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Monday 3 July 2006
Keynote Speaker: Sutapa Biswas
This one day conference is designed to assess and evaluate the specific relationship between women, the arts and globalization on the articulation of diasporic and migrant identities, past, present and future.The conference seeks to test the limits of extant maps of globalization, contemporary art practices and migration by exploring how women artists and women's creative practices operate within the dominant patterns of the marketplace and how they map the world against the grain, developing alternative networks and new meanings. The ways in which women negotiate diasporas and migration and articulate their specific position as sexed subjects, challenges us to look again at women's practice and cultural agency in the context of global networks of exchange and their impact on the arts.
Participants include: Dorothy Rowe, Marsha Meskimmon, Fran Lloyd, Sutapa Biswas,Roshini Kempadoo, Katy Deepwell, Francoise Dupre, Mohini Chandra, Gaye Chan, Nandita Sharma, Alpesh Patel, Suzanna Chan, Sue Malvern, Amna Malik, Lena Simic and Visnja Majewski.
