Summary: Continuing ACCA's ongoing series of Big Picture exhibitions focussing on contemporary art's relation to wider social, cultural and political contexts, Unfinished Business is a major exhibition conceived to animate critical, albeit under-represented, practices and debates within contemporary Australian art and society. Surveying the diverse scope of feminist art practices -- including painting, performance, photography and film to community engagement and cultural activism -- the exhibition focuses upon the dynamic formal invention and social engagement of feminist artists. It explores strategies and analyses of gender identity and representation, intersectional politics, and practices which embrace performative codes, text and media technologies, humour and critique. Adopting a collaborative, polyphonic form which encourages diverse voices, practices and debates, Unfinished Business presents new commissions and recent work alongside selected historical projects, programs of film and performance, and a publication with contributions by art historians, artists and theorists from the 1970s to the present.
