Feminist Perspective and Practices in Contemporary Art (AH2107.01)

Carol Stakenas

This course will consider how feminist theory has evolved over the past four decades and how artists, curators and scholars of all genders and nationalities, advocate feminism in their practices. To examine its impact on the art world, Feminist Perspectives and Practices in Contemporary Art will explore the feminist movement in the US from the 1970s through its evolution to present day. We will read and discuss a selection of critical texts and look at a wide range of international artists across generations from Judy Chicago, Adrian Piper, Suzanne Lacy and Lorraine O’Grady to Mona Hatoum, Zanele Muholi, the Ultra-red collective, Women on Waves and Jeanne van Heeswijk and many, many more. What’s your relationship to the F-word? Let’s find out.
