Photography meets feminism: Australian women photographers 1970s–80s

Photography meets feminism: Australian women photographers 1970s–80s | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

Robyn Stacey, Untitled, 1981

 

During this period of the late twentieth century, photography helped feminism and feminism helped photography. On the one hand, feminists used the highly informative and accessible medium of photography to raise awareness of critical social issues. On the other hand, photographic artists embraced feminist themes as a way of making their practice less esoteric and more engaged with contemporary life. This productive exchange between feminism and photography fostered a range of technical innovations and critical frameworks that radically transformed the direction of visual culture in Australia.

Yes, you read that right; Vincent Price, the famed B-film master of kitschy horror was selected to head a retail art sales program for Sears.

Loïs Mailou Jones (1905-1998) painting in her Paris studio in 1937 or 1938 as her cat hangs out on her shoulder. Born in Boston, her mother, Carolyn Dorinda Jones was a hat designer and a beautician, and her father, Thomas Vreeland Jones, was an office building superintendent before becoming a lawyer at age forty. Ms. Jones was encouraged by both parents to pursue art and she graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston in 1927. After studying art at Harvard and Columbia, she established the art department at Palmer Memorial Institute, the black preparatory school founded by Charlotte Hawkins Brown in Sedalia, North Carolina. Ms. Jones then moved on to Howard University in 1930 and remained there until 1977. Photo: Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Sonia Delaunay : Textile Artist

Sonia Delaunay : Textile Artist | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

When reading about the history of fiber art it seems to take on many elements. The history of fiber art incorporates craft, textile and design elements that are not usually explored in regular art history. The use of embroidery and clothing inspired artists such as Sonia Delaunay who had started off as a painter and found new inspirations when she shifted her medium from brush, canvas and oil paint to needle, thread and textile printing. In exploring Sonia’s textile and wearable art works I’d like to explore her success as a woman in the art world.

Elvis at 21 delves into the puzzling nature of sex appeal, charisma, and intimacy | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

Before he was The King, Elvis Presley was a shy-but-charismatic young man who couldn't have known what curious life lay in store. The photography exhibition Elvis at 21, which opens at Fort Worth Museum of Science and History on May 25, presents an intimate window into the ineffability of fame, shot on the cusp of the young musician's international superstardom during the formative days of his enduring mythos.

Pin-Up Queens: Three Female Artists Who Shaped the American Dream Girl | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

“So many women are left out of historical records,” Dahlsad says. “Men will say, ‘I want to show off what my father did; he deserves to shine. Someone should do a book on him!’ Daughters don’t do that about their moms to the same degree, so often things get thrown away. How many men would look at their archives say, ‘Just take it all to the dumpster’? Somebody would be saying, ‘You can’t do that! You’re George Petty. Put it back!’”

If It’s Antique Is It Still Porn? | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

If you thought the matter of who makes art exploring the issue of abortion difficult, perhaps the following antique erotic artworks will be too upsetting. That’s your warning to leave.

 

For these works go beyond the issue of basic nudity in art, beyond even the matter of erotic art, to  explore sexuality along with religion and what appears to be the opulence of wealth.
