ART-3220.LA: Feminist Art: a Revolution in Creative Practice

From the 1960s on, the feminist art movement has inspired pioneering new directions in visual art, as evidenced by recent significant survey exhibitions such as the WACK! show at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles in 2007. What is feminist art and how can we learn from its accomplishments and innovations? Who were some of its most interesting and provocative practitioners? How can we incorporate feminist concerns into our art work, in ways that are personally and politically relevant?and aesthetically and conceptually exciting? These are some of the questions we?ll explore as we study a diversity of feminist artists and projects. Students will execute their own art projects in response to some of the core themes and strategies of feminist art, while being encouraged to update their approaches based on current issues and life experiences. We will begin by viewing some pre-cursors of feminist art, then study the critical accomplishments of artists of the 1960s and 70s, and finally move on to discuss contemporary artists. Students need no prior experience in art, and may create class projects based on their particular skill level, including painting, installation, craft-based forms, photography, video, text, performance, and internet-based projects. This class welcomes all genders, and students may address the projects themes as pertains to their experiences and interests.
