Body Talk: Feminism, Sexuality and the Body in the Work of Six African Women Artists | WIELS, Brussels

Body Talk: Feminism, Sexuality and the Body in the Work of Six African Women Artists | WIELS, Brussels | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

Body Talk addresses issues of feminism, sexuality and the body, as they play themselves out in the work of a generation of women artists from Africa active since the early 1990s. 

 

Bringing together artists from different parts of the continent, this group exhibition strives to define and articulate notions of feminism and sexuality in the work of women artists whose body (their own or that of others) serves as a tool, a representation or a field of investigation. In their work, the body manifests itself, whether sequentially or simultaneously, as a model, support, subject or object. 

 

WIELS, Brussels

14.02 – 03.05.2015

Zap! Pow! Snap! "WonderWomen" at the Katherine Nash Gallery

Zap! Pow! Snap! "WonderWomen" at the Katherine Nash Gallery | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

She has superhuman strength, her wounds heal instantly and her collection of weaponry includes the Lasso of Truth and a razor-sharp tiara to throw at her enemies. Who wouldn't like to be Wonder Woman, at least occasionally? Okay, the bustier, tight blue panties, and high-heeled boots might be a little uncomfortable, but her contradictory qualities - part super hero, part pinup girl - have mesmerized us since she came on the scene in 1941.

 

No wonder the enduring pop culture icon makes a great focal point for a group exhibition at the University of Minnesota's Katherine E. Nash Gallery entitled "WonderWomen." Co-sponsored by the University of Minnesota, the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and the Film Society of Minneapolis St. Paul, the show features work by women artists from around the world who are inspired or influenced by comics, animation or popular culture.

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.

It’s a woman’s world at Bozar’s Summer of Photography | Flanders Today

It’s a woman’s world at Bozar’s Summer of Photography | Flanders Today | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

For women, photography was different, says Gabriele Schor, the Austrian curator of Bozar’s new exhibition, WOMAN: The Feminist Avant-Garde of the 1970s, which stands as the centrepiece of the fifth biennial Summer of Photography festival in Brussels.

 

According to Schor, when women took up photography and other new media in the 1960s and ’70s, it was an act of artistic emancipation. “For the first time in the history of art, the ‘image of women’ was being created by women,” she says.


WOMAN, a collection of 450 works – mostly photographs – by 29 European and American female artists of the 1970s, sets the tone for this year’s festival, which takes a penetrating look into the world of gender and how it is performed and experienced in different societies.

 

Spearheaded by Bozar and in collaboration with 36 partners, Summer of Photography spreads across 20 locations in the Brussels-Capital Region, representing more than 85 artists.

Until 31 August 2014.

Marilyn Sanders: Wo-Men Working | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

"I photograph to share what it is to be alive, an impulse so profound, that I sometimes feel as if images I’m making with my camera could emerge from my inner core as if I were a human camera obscura.- Marilyn Sanders – 2014."

 

Photographer Marilyn Sanders has been interpreting the world for nearly four decades, and today Lenscratch features a series that examines the roles of working women at a time when the Women’s Movement was just taking hold. Marilyn’s focus as a photographer ranges from portraiture, still life, to societal examination.  She works with analog and digital processes and her work is produced in silver gelatin and digital prints.

Experimental opera inspired by Charlotte Perkins Gilman's "The Yellow Wallpaper"

Experimental opera inspired by Charlotte Perkins Gilman's "The Yellow Wallpaper" | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

"A mixed-media, experimental opera produced by a Hackney-based electronic artist and avant-garde vocalist is to be performed in May at The Horse Hospital in central London.


Room of Worlds is an hour-long chamber opera for live voices, electronics and video. It charts the physical and psychological journey of a woman in a patriarchal landscape of domesticity, love and loneliness, through medicine and memory to the edge of madness.

 

Electronic artist Charles Webber composed the opera and also produced video for it, while experimental vocalist and former member of punk group Crass Eve Libertine, wrote the libretto.

 

It is loosely based on the autobiographical short story The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, written in the nineteenth century and regarded as a significant piece of early American feminist literature."

 

Room of Worlds is at The Horse Hospital, London, from 9– 10 May 2014.

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

India's 'missing' women cast shadow over national art fair | For Art's Sake-1 | 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."

Photographer's Unbelievable Response To The Objectification Of Women (NSFW)

Photographer's Unbelievable Response To The Objectification Of Women (NSFW) | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

Our media has the tendency to bombard us with dehumanizing images of the female body. Instead of presenting women as fully-realized individuals, it dissects us into sexualized parts like “breast,” “butt,” or “thigh.” The photographer Roger Weiss explains this sort of objectification thusly: “The image of women of our times has been reduced to a pattern, a combination of codes and models that lead to the woman/individual instead of the other way around.”

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.
