FACT: Wicked Women: Reimagining Gender and Fairytale


Venue: FACT
Dates: 17/04/2019
Times: 18:00


Part of the Spring 2019 season

Wicked Women explores the gender narratives that are shaped through fairytale and mythology, and the female archetypes that are woven into our histories and contemporary society. This symposium will ask how we can collectively re-imagine and re-tell women’s stories, and how they affect our present and future narrative.

The symposium will be followed by a screening of two of Marianna Simnett’s films not included in the current exhibition: Worst Gift (2017) and The Needle and the Larynx (2016), which continue the artist’s exploration of infection, gender, perversion, desire, and illness, through visceral, distorted experiences.
