3G aka 3 Generations of Women Artists Perform started as an annual mini-festival in 2016 as part of Perth and Kinross Women’s Festival. Since then we have been celebrating the International Women’s Day with a focus on body politics and feminism showcasing the performative practice of women artists in different stages of their career.

Join us for our third annual 3G 2018 and experience works by European women video pioneers from 1970s and 80s on the big screen. See a rare performance talk by Elaine Shemilt as she responds to her own work Doppelgänger (1979-81). Hear from Laura Leuzzi as she focuses on the performance art legacy of women artists. Enjoy live, site-specific performances by Contemporary Art Practice students from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design led by artists Richard Layzell and Pernille Spence.

3G 2018 features performative works for live audiences and for the big screen by Klára Kuchta, Federica Marangoni, Elaine Shemilt and Teresa Wennberg showing at Threshold artspace for the first time.
