Modern Woman is a collaborative, site-based work—part poetry reading, part theatre—centring on the representation and performance of gender. Responding to the quasi-domestic composition of objects on display in the 17th to 18th Century European Paintings Gallery, and taking cues from Jean Genet’s The Maids, the work showcases poets with recent publications from three independent presses—Cordite Books, Slow Loris and Vagabond Press.

This event is part of the Melbourne Art Book Fair highlight program Performing Poetics.
