Exploring Feminist Art: History and Practice
Taught by Kimberley Mackenzie
Kimberley is a freelance art educator, as well as art learner, in a handful of museums and schools throughout the city. For the past year, she has continued sharpening her feminist chops as a collective owner of Bluestockings feminist bookstore.
Feminism and art are both hotly debated terms, and putting them together certainly doesn't make it any easier.
Together, we'll discover what, precisely, feminist art is through both discussion and art-making. We'll look at the history of feminist art, it's origins and predecessors, and contemporary interpretations. But what better way to understand art than to create it? After each discussion, we'll engage in a collaborative process to make our own art. Non-artists are welcome and encouraged!
Expect to learn about everything from naked folks rolling around in meat (Carolee Schneemann's "Meat Joy") and the limitations of making dinner for every famous woman in history (Judy Chicago's "The Dinner Party") to the semiotics of cooking that dinner (Martha Rosler's "Semiotics of the Kitchen") and lots more.
