Director Lucy Kerbel discusses women on stage

Director Lucy Kerbel discusses women on stage | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

"When Lucy Kerbel was putting together her 100 Great Plays for Women she bumped into a literary manager for a leading London theatre. “I told him I was looking for plays with mainly female casts,” the 31-year-old director says. “He asked, ‘Are there any?’”

 

Eventually, he half-remembered one. “That Lorca,” but it took his partner to name it: The House of Bernarda Alba. “In his mind,” Kerbel recalls, “that was the beginning and end of the conversation. And I was thinking, ‘You are the literary manager of one of the capital’s most prestigious theatres, and you have to rely on your partner to name one play with a majority female cast’.” [...]

 

But that literary manager isn’t alone in overlooking women in theatre. At the weekend, the National Theatre’s sparkling 50th anniversary gala was criticised by some for the paucity of female playwrights represented: only one of the more than 30 scenes featured was written by a woman (Alecky Blythe’s London Road). [...]"

 

Lucy Kerbel’s 100 Great Plays for Women is published by Nick Hern Books on November 14.

The SCAR Project: Breast Cancer Is Not A Pink Ribbon

The SCAR Project: Breast Cancer Is Not A Pink Ribbon | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

The SCAR Project is a series of large-scale portraits of young breast cancer survivors shot by fashion photographer David Jay. Primarily an awareness raising campaign, The SCAR Project puts a raw, unflinching face on early onset breast cancer while paying tribute to the courage and spirit of so many brave young women.

Dedicated to the more than 10,000 women under the age of 40 who will be diagnosed this year alone, The SCAR Project is an exercise in awareness, hope, reflection and healing. The mission is three-fold: raise public consciousness of early-onset breast cancer, raise funds for breast cancer research/outreach programs and help young survivors see their scars, faces, figures and experiences through a new, honest and ultimately empowering lens.

I have entertained the idea of selling my smaller paintings on Ebay, but there was such a negative stigma from other artists that you are devaluing your artwork. But I have heard success stories too. Give this article a read and tell me what you think...and if you have a store on eBay, post your link. ;)

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 | For Art's Sake-1 | 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."

A tale of Copyright Confusion, Fair Use, and "zazzled" nerves — Part One | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

So why, exactly, would I decide to censor my own work? Well, in the opinion of the print-on-demand service Zazzle, I don’t have the right to sell products containing my original copyrighted photo (seen to the right) on their website. This photo, along with nine other images, was rejected by Zazzle’s content review team as being “in conflict with one or more of our acceptable content guidelines.”


Huh?

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Even your own photographs can be contested for copyright & intellectual property infringement. And this is not just a Zazzle thing.
