Why is there an enormous triangular table at the Brooklyn Museum covered with genitalia-shaped dinner plates? Why was that Intro to Art History course you took in undergrad all about white men from Europe? How are art and feminism related, and what does it even mean for an artist to be feminist?
For answers to these questions and more, come join Feminist Art Club! In this three-hour workshop, you'll get a crash course in feminist art history through the ages and become familiar with notable woman artists and their contributions to the canon as we explore techniques in zine-making and create your own works of feminist art.
No previous knowledge of art history or feminism is required.
