Judy Chicago, The Fresno Feminist Art Program, and the Collective Visions of Women Artists

In 1970, Judy Chicago and fifteen students founded the groundbreaking Feminist Art Program (FAP) at Fresno State. Drawing upon the consciousness-raising techniques of the women's liberation movement, they created shocking new art forms depicting female experiences. Collaborative work and performance art – including the famous "Cunt Cheerleaders" – were program hallmarks. Moving to Los Angeles, the FAP produced the first major feminist art installation, Womanhouse (1972). Augmented by thirty-seven illustrations and color plates, this interdisciplinary collection of essays by artists and scholars, many of whom were eye witnesses to landmark events, relates how feminists produced vibrant bodies of art in Fresno and other locales where similar collaborations flourished. Articles on topics such as African American artists in New York and Los Angeles, San Francisco’s Las Mujeres Muralistas and Asian American Women Artists Association, and exhibitions in Taiwan and Italy showcase the artistic trajectories that destabilized traditional theories and practices and reshaped the art world. An engaging editor’s introduction explains how feminist art emerged within the powerful women’s movement that transformed America. Entering the Picture is an exciting collection about the provocative contributions of feminists to American art.

Inventing Feminist Scholarship and Women’s Studies in Canada and Québec, 1966–76

This book of personal essays by over forty women and men who founded women’s studies in Canada and Québec explores feminist activism on campus in the pivotal decade of 1966-76. The essays document the emergence of women’s studies as a new way of understanding women, men, and society, and they challenge some current preconceptions about “second wave” feminist academics. The contributors explain how the intellectual and political revolution begun by small groups of academics—often young, untenured women—at universities across Canada contributed to social progress and profoundly affected the way we think, speak, behave, understand equality, and conceptualize the academy and an academic career. A contextualizing essay documents the social, economic, political, and educational climate of the time, and a concluding chapter highlights the essays’ recurring themes and assesses the intellectual and social transformation that their authors helped set in motion. The essays document the appalling sexism and racism some women encounter in seeking admission to doctoral studies, in hiring, in pay, and in establishing the legitimacy of feminist perspectives in the academy. They reveal sources of resistance, too, not only from colleagues and administrators but from family members and from within the self. In so doing they provide inspiring examples of sisterly support and lifelong friendship.

This is the first book to take seriously - though not too seriously - the surprisingly neglected role of humour in art. 'Art and Laughter' looks back to comic masters such as Hogarth and Daumier and to Dada, Surrealism and Pop Art, asking what makes us laugh and why. It explores the use of comedy in art from satire and irony to pun, parody and black and bawdy humour. Encouraging laughter in the hallowed space of the gallery, Sheri Klein praises the contemporary artist as ‘clown’ - often overlooked in favour of the role of artist as ‘serious’ commentator - and takes us on a tour of the comic work of Red Grooms, Cary Leibowitz, ‘The Hairy Who’, Richard Prince, Bruce Nauman, Jeff Koons, William Wegman, Vik Muniz and many more. She seeks out those rare smiles in art - from the Mona Lisa onwards - and highlights too the pleasures of the cute, the camp and the downright kitsch.

Feminism Reframed

Reflections on Art and Difference

Author: Alexandra M. Kokoli

Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing

ISBN: 144381511X

Category: Social Science

Page: 293

View: 2512

Feminism Reframed: Reflections on Art and Difference addresses the on-going dialogue between feminism, art history and visual culture from contemporary scholarly perspectives. Over the past thirty years, the critical interventions of feminist art historians in the academy, the press and the art world have not only politicised and transformed the themes, methods and conceptual tools of art history, but have also contributed to the emergence of new interdisciplinary areas of investigation, including notably that of visual culture. Although the impact of such fruitful transformations is indisputable, their exact contribution to contemporary scholarship remains a matter for debate, not least because feminism itself has changed significantly since the Women’s Liberation Movement. Feminism Reframed reviews and revises existing feminist art histories but also reasserts the need for continuous feminist interventions in the academy, the art world and beyond. With contributions by Anthea Behm, Alisia Grace Chase, Jennifer G. Germann, Catherine Grant, Joanne Heath, Ruth Hemus, Alexandra Kokoli, Beth Anne Lauritis, Griselda Pollock, Karen Roulstone, Anne Swartz and Sue Tate. “Coming at the moment when contemporary art practices are themselves involved in re-cycling, re-evaluating and re-enacting the past, this collection asks how feminism’s own ‘troubled’ histories can be reframed productively in the present. The questions that feminism raised in the 1970s and 80s are still pertinent, and are addressed in a number of original essays: What does gender equality mean in the arts? How can women’s subjectivities be articulated or performed differently in art practices? Can attention to gender enable us to engage with complex differences of race, sexuality and class, of age and generation? Do we need new interpretative and conceptual models for writing about art? Alexandra Kokoli’s thoughtful and illuminating introduction reminds us that reframing is a risky but exciting business if it makes us ask these questions anew, with attention to the politics and aesthetics of the present.” —Rosemary Betterton, Lancaster University

Wie viel ein schwarzes Leben zählt. Patrisse Khan-Cullors, die Mitbegründerin der neuen Bürgerrechtsbewegung #BlackLivesMatter, erzählt in diesem Buch vom Aufwachsen in einem Land, das von Armut, Ungleichheit und rassistischer Polizeigewalt geprägt ist. Sie schildert, wie sie Menschen begegnet, die entschlossen sind, Amerika zu verändern. Gemeinsam mit ihnen fordert sie eine neue Antwort auf eine alte Frage: Wie viel zählt ein schwarzes Leben? Als im Sommer 2013 der Nachbarschaftswachmann George Zimmerman, der den 17-jährigen schwarzen Schüler Trayvon Martin erschossen hat, freigesprochen wird, entsteht in den USA eine neue Bürgerrechtsbewegung unter dem Hashtag #BlackLivesMatter. In diesem Buch erzählt die Mitbegründerin ihre Geschichte. Patrisse Khan-Cullors wird in einem der ärmsten Viertel von Los Angeles geboren. Schon als kleines Mädchen erlebt sie den grundlegenden Unterschied, den ihre Hautfarbe bedeutet: in der Schule, in Freundschaften, in der Nachbarschaft. Der Zusammenhalt in ihrer Familie wird immer wieder auf die Probe gestellt – ihre Eltern, Verwandten und Geschwister kämpfen verzweifelt gegen die Folgen von Polizeigewalt, Ausbeutung in McJobs, Drogensucht, Rassismus und staatlicher Willkür. Auf dem Weg in ein selbstbestimmtes und freies Leben helfen ihr Kunst, Bildung und große Offenheit für andere Menschen. Ein Netzwerk entsteht, dessen Engagement über den Kampf gegen Rassismus hinausgeht. In eindringlicher Sprache erzählt Patrisse Khan-Cullors aus dem Alltag eines unbekannten Amerikas. Ihre zutiefst bewegende Geschichte hat eine einfache Botschaft: #BlackLivesMatter.

Fictional Feminism

How American Bestsellers Affect the Movement for Women's Equality

Author: Kim A. Loudermilk

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1135884404

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 236

View: 2228

This book focuses on the ways in which second-wave feminism has been represented in American popular culture, and on the effects that these representations have had on feminism as a political movement. Kim Loudermilk provides close readings of four best-selling novels and their film adaptations. According to Loudermilk, each of these novels contains explicitly feminist characters and themes, yet each presents a curiously ambivalent picture of feminism; these texts at once take feminism seriously and subtly undercut its most central tenets. This book argues that these texts create a kind of "fictional feminism" that recuperates feminism's radical potential, thereby lessening the threat it presents to the status quo.
