Future Feminist Archive, an introduction 



Future Feminist Archive (FFA) is a year-long project to mark the 40th Anniversary of International Women’s Year, wherein artists and researchers engage with and speculate about feminist histories in archives and collections to create exhibitions, workshops, performances and publishing outcomes. The project comprises nine artist-led projects across NSW to forge connections between diverse community histories and current ideas relating to feminism in response to growing interest in the role of archives.

By this means hidden or neglected information and new knowledge about artists and their communities will ultimately create over two hundred new entries in DAAO (Design and Art Australia Online) with a regional focus.

Contemporary Art and Feminism

Contemporary Art and Feminism is an independent platform for art, scholarship and activism with links to the Contemporary Art and Feminism Research Cluster at Sydney College of the Arts (USYD); the School of Letters, Arts and Media; and the Power Institute at Sydney University. It responds to the groundswell of interest in feminism’s role in the development of contemporary art and its current relevance to art- making and analysis. It is part-funded by ArtsNSW and run by Sydney College of the Arts, Department of Art Theory (USYD) and The Cross Art Projects. See: http://contemporaryartandfeminism.com/
