Feminism in Art: 1918 to 2018

Frieze Academy presents 'When Feminism met Art and when Art met Feminism: 1918 to 2018'.

In the year of the centenary of the vote for women, it is timely to explore how the emancipation of women has been expressed in art. What has one hundred years of art meant for the art women have produced, as well

as for the art representing women’s lives. How closely has it mirrored the politics of the last century?

Shifting the paradigm of art history has involved much more than adding women and their history ­to existing categorisation. It has led to wholly new ways of conceptualizing what we study. It has raised the question of what is feminism within the confines of art.

Griselda Pollock and Jennifer Higgie will look at the last century in art and discuss what it has meant for women artists and the portrayal of women since - as the unfolding of the narrative continues

Speakers

Pollock is well known for her theoretical and methodological innovation, combined with readings of historical and contemporary art, film and cultural theory. Since 1977, Pollock has been one of the most influential scholars in feminist theory, feminist art history and gender studies.
