Contemporary Feminism: Sons of Feminism

6pm, Tue 2 July





City Gallery Friend


City Gallery and RNZ are back with a third series of lively panel discussions exploring Contemporary Feminism, inspired by our current exhibitions. Presented in partnership with RNZ and recorded for broadcast.

Eva Rothschild's video Boys and Sculpture shows a group of young boys dismantling the artist's work. Rothschild—a mother of three boys—takes pleasure in their joyous physicality. How much is their behaviour the product of nature, how much the product of nurture?

Chaired by Susie Ferguson, this panel asks how can we begin to unpack our narratives around the male/female brain? How has feminism changed the way we raise boys and how is it changing the men they become? How does parenting boys affect feminists? And how do boys see themselves through feminism?

Panelists include Emily Writes and Salvatore Gargiulo.

In association with Eva Rothschild: Kosmos.

Doors open 5.30pm. Cash bar open until 6pm and again after the panel discussion to continue the conversation.
