Description

Intro to Feminist Art! (an interactive lecture + art-making workshop)



"AND IT IS THE RIGHT TIME that women use art as a means of expression so as to influence the consciousness of all of us, let our ideas flow into the social construction of reality to create a human reality. so far the arts have been created to a large extent solely by men. they dealt with the subjects of life, with the problems of emotional life adding only their own accounts, answers and solutions. now we must make our own assertions. we must destroy all these notions of love, faith, family, motherhood, companionship, which were not created by us and thus replace them with new ones in accordance with our sensibility, with our wishes...."

- Valie Export, "Women's Art: A Manifesto," 1972


In this three-hour workshop, you'll learn about the feminist art movement of the 1970s and 80s as well as feminist art history through the ages as you become familiar with notable women artists and their contributions to the canon. You'll discover how art and feminism have interacted over the years, gain insight into critiques of mainstream feminist artists and trends, and see how various artists have reacted to the white male domination of western art history.

After a fun and interactive lecture, we'll explore techniques in zine-making as you create your own works of feminist art.

All are welcome! No previous knowledge of art history or feminism is required and all art-making materials will be provided.

*TW: A few of the artworks we will look at deal with themes of sexual harassment, violence, and assault.
