How much does gender influence the art world?

How much does gender influence the art world? | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

An exhibition showcasing six female abstract artists poses questions about the real impact of gender on output and perception in the art world.


...The exhibition raises two questions (amongst many) that I want to address briefly here. Is there anything specific to say about women and abstraction: does gender matter when art sheds all references except to its own processes and potentialities as colour, line, space, surface, rhythm and so forth or when it seeks to commune with abstract forces and effects we call nature?


And what do these specific and highly diverse artists in the show bring to the debate about the continuing relevance of abstraction in painting now?


...'Female artists need feminism like a hole in the head'


Yet Riley is also the artist who commented in the early 1970s, that women artists needed feminism - attention to gender issues - like they needed a hole in the head. Understandably she belongs to a generation of artists for whom modern art offered the wonderful opportunity to ‘be an artist’, simply and firmly engaged with artistic questions. Yet when the great American abstract painter Helen Frankenthaler died in 2011, the obituary writers repeated over and over again her disdain for feminists even while it was feminist writers who wrote some of the most interesting and appreciative analyses of her work, taking her much more seriously than the art historians who simply allowed her work only to be a ‘bridge between Pollock and what came after’.

"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.

{pricing} 46 random tips to help you price your stuff

{pricing} 46 random tips to help you price your stuff | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

pricing. seriously, i think this is one of the most challenging parts of
building your own little biz.

last week i recommended an ebook called earn what you deserve. this book  does not give you a magic formula for figuring out your pricing. what it does do is tackle the underlying issues you need to consider before you can really charge what you are worth.

let me say that again. no pricing advice in the world is going to help you
if you do not have a sense of the value of your work.

earn what you deserve is going to help you do that. with it, you consider
what it means to be a biz owner, tackle your own beliefs about money and finances, figure out the true cost of doing business, look at new ways of marketing and selling, and start to build your own sense of value in your work and your product. once you have done that, then what?

well it is time to look at what you have been charging for your product. as
promised i have compiled a list of tips, advice and strategies from all
over the place that may help you with this. this is not a step-by-step
formula for figuring out your price. (if i ever find the elusive, magic
step-by-step formula for pricing i will share it immediately!) what i have
done is a lot of research into different strategies and taken the bits and
pieces that make sense to me and apply them to what i do. so i am sharing those bits and pieces with you here.

first, let’s get your head in the game...

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.
