Feminist Art, 1968 to the Present

GSF390S.04

This seminar will introduce students to feminist art: artwork that reveals the effects of images on recognizable definitions of gender, sexuality, race, and class.  Feminist art was inspired by, and a significant part of, the Women’s Liberation Movement and the general milieu of protest and critique sparked by the political upheaval of the late 1960s and 1970s. This course therefore involves thinking about how to make connections between artwork, the historical contexts it emerges out of, aspirations for political change, and demands for greater equality.
