Contemporary Feminism Panel: Ageing and Agency

22 February 2017

Panels are in partnership with RNZ and have been recorded for broadcast. Listen to the Ageing and Agency broadcast here.

Sorry, this event is fully booked.

In the context of Cindy Sherman, City Gallery and Radio New Zealand present three big and lively conversations exploring contemporary feminism. Across three events, join panelists and RNZ presenters Eva Radich, Megan Whelan and Kim Hill as they explore contemporary ideas and issues around feminism, on a local and global scale.

In this third panel discussion, led by Kim Hill, speakers discuss ‘Ageing and Agency’. Cindy Sherman's recent works confront the vexed issue of ageing. Is this a golden age for 'women of a certain age'? Or, in a society that still worships youth, are older women as invisible as ever? Do women have the agency they have earned?

Ageing and Agency Speakers include:
Miranda Harcourt, actress, director, acting coach
Dr Ella Henry, Lecturer, Māori Media and Development, AUT
Jacqueline Fahey, artist and writer
Dr Claire Robinson, Professor of Communication Design, Massey University

Cash bar open before and after each panel. Cindy Sherman will remain open until the event begins—exhibition entry charges apply.

'Contemporary Feminism' talks are free, bookings essential. Book from 10 January.

Please arrive before 6pm to secure your seat.
