  • Event Cost:
    This is a public event, which is free for IMA members. Admission is $5 for non-members.

OtherFilm and the IMA presents an evening of feminist film screenings to coincide with Sarah Browne: Hand to Mouth and Mierle Laderman Ukeles: Maintenance Art Works 1969–1980.

Films will include Martha Rosler’s influential ‘women’s work’ parody Semiotics of the Kitchen (1975), Dara Birnbaum’s appropriated television imagery Wonder Woman (1978–9), and pioneering Australian film feminists Robin Laurie and Margot Nash’s We Aim to Please (1976). Laurie will introduce We Aim to Please, commenting on what has changed in the current context.

Our featurette for the evening comes from Duncan Campbell, nominee for the 2014 Turner Prize. Bernadette (2008) is a tense, open-ended story of Irish dissident and political activist Bernadette Devlin.

The Institute of Modern Art acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land upon which the IMA now stands, the Jagera, Yuggera, Yugarapul, and Turrbal people. We offer our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first artists of this country. In the spirit of allyship, the IMA will continue to work with First Nations people to celebrate, support, and present their immense past, present, and future contribution to artistic practice and cultural expression.
