She Persists: Emily Floyd

She Persists is a hardcopy book and an online hub of 34 essays and podcasts. Together they examine the important role of women in art and design by taking a closer look at works in the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) collection.

Art Guide Australia is currently featuring an extract by curator Jane Devery, who explores the impact of feminist archives on the work of contemporary sculptor Emily Floyd, on its web platform.

“Since the early 2000s, Floyd has productively mined a nexus between art, education and activism in a practice concerned with social and pedagogical engagement and political acts of historical retrieval. Over the course of her career she has gained widespread attention for bold sculptural and graphic works that suggest contemporary art can function as an instructive platform for social, political and cultural debate.”
