India's 'missing' women cast shadow over national art fair

India's 'missing' women cast shadow over national art fair | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

"India Art Fair installation exposes the country's stark gender divisions by paying tribute to millions of women who never were.

 

Hulking figures cast in black steel towered over the India Art Fair as it opened on Friday, with the eerie silhouettes representing the country's millions of "missing" women.

 

The outdoor installation, M.I.S.S.I.N.G. by artist Leena Kejriwal, is a visual response to the growing gender gap in India, which has led to severe imbalances in parts of the country. Fuelled by sex-selective abortion, infanticide and the death of girls through neglect, the issue forms part of a national debate about women's rights triggered by fresh scrutiny of sexual violence."

Jerry Saltz: My Final Word on MoMA’s Woman Problem

Jerry Saltz: My Final Word on MoMA’s Woman Problem | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

"Nine years ago this week, MoMA opened its brand-new shiny $750 million building. Since this Garden of Modernism reopened, I’ve been gibbering about the dearth of art by women in the museum’s all-important permanent collection of painting and sculpture, installed on the fourth and fifth floors. MoMA is modernism’s mothership, so the way the story of modernism is told here is crucial. And the numbers are horrendous.

 

At the 2004 grand-opening show, there were 415 works on view on the museum’s fourth and fifth floors. Of these, fewer than 20 were by women. Less than 5 percent. In 2006, 19 were by women. A year later, the number was 14.

 

Which brings us to the present. I guess we can say that things are better: Today, by my count, there are 367 works of art on view on these two floors, and 29 of them are by women. That’s just short of 8 percent. Slightly less terrible. Still unforgivable."

Art, Identification, and Labels: Understandings of “Feminist Art” Among Female Artists » Sociology Lens

Art, Identification, and Labels: Understandings of “Feminist Art” Among Female Artists » Sociology Lens | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

Janet Bloch. Self Portrait as Shakti, 2004.

 

"Full Disclosure:  I am a feminist.  It never crossed my mind that there might be anything problematic about labeling myself this way since I have openly articulated my interests in gender issues and social, political, and economic equality since my early undergraduate days.  Of course, I knew that researchers had shown women today often reject the term “feminist” (McRobbie 2004; Rowe-Finkbeiner 2004; Levy 2006). However, I somehow had convinced myself that these individuals were just not informed.  I truly believed that if men and women could critically examined the social construction of gender, see the ways in which gendered notions impact their lives, and take the time to critique these forces there could be greater understanding, acceptance, and embracement of feminist politics.

 

Last fall I found myself working on a project on women’s art.  I met with several female artists whose work examined, questioned, and challenged cultural gender expectations.  What I found utterly shocked me; within the art world, there are a number of female artists that use art as a vehicle to challenge gender inequality but are cautious, hesitant, or dismissive of being labeled as “feminist artists.” I found that many female artists believe that term “feminism” is so deeply connected to a stigmatized social movement that strongly reject the label even while creating feminist art."
