Tate St Ives Talk

I had the honour of being asked to talk about my work at the Tate St Ives in November! I was interviewed in a Q & A (by the very lovely Anna Calleja) as part of the gallery's U Studio festival aimed at young arty people. The current film screening at the Tate, 'Why Are You Angry?' (Nashashibi/Skaer) was made in response to the artist Gauguin's troubling treatment of the young women he depicted, and has prompted a lot of discussion and group work exploring this idea further. My talk touched on my thoughts on contemporary feminism and my involvement with the Hypatia Trust, a charity promoting women's academic achievements locally, as well as my film work and experience of the different gender dynamics I've come against (and their challenges!). It was a really lovely event with some other fascinating talks going on, and great to see how passionate the teenage workshop groups were about gender issues and women on-screen.
