Women House : a group exhibition of women artists | Monnaie de Paris

Women House : a group exhibition of women artists | Monnaie de Paris | Gender and art | Scoop.it

Martha Rosler, Woman with Vacuum, or Vacuuming Pop Art


"Women House is the meeting of two notions: a gender - the female - and a space - the domestic one. Architecture and public space have been masculine while the domestic space was for a long time the prison or the shelter of women: this historical evidence is nevertheless not a fatality and the exhibition Women House shows this. On a 1000 Sq m. floor area and in some of Monnaie de Paris’ courtyards, it brings together 39 female artists of the 20th and 21st centuries who take up this complex subject and place women at the center of a history of which they were absent."

Roots of “The Dinner Party”: History in the Making - Brooklyn Museum

Roots of “The Dinner Party”: History in the Making - Brooklyn Museum | Gender and art | Scoop.it

"Since the 1970s, Judy Chicago has been a pioneer in the development of feminism as an artistic movement and an educational project that endeavors to restore women’s place in history. Her most influential and widely known work is the sweeping installation The Dinner Party (1974–79), celebrating women’s achievements in Western culture in the form of a meticulously executed banquet table set for 39 mythical and historical women and honoring 999 others."

Wendy Morris - This, of course, is a work of the imagination (Mu.ZEE, Ostend)

Wendy Morris  - This, of course, is a work of the imagination (Mu.ZEE, Ostend) | Gender and art | Scoop.it

"One hundred years ago, in 1917, the SS Mendi sails through the English Channel towards France. On board is a battalion of South African labour troops. There is a collision and the ship sinks. No assistance is offered and more than 600 men drown. Memory of the disaster fades in the turmoil of the Great War.


In the exhibition the story of the SS Mendi is used as a “pars pro toto”. It stands for a larger story that leads the viewer towards the complex history of South African segregation, a story that touches not only on colonial Western attitudes towards Africa but also on black South African attitudes towards the First World War. Wendy Morris looks back in an exhibition in which animated film, video, poetry and spoken word explore the boundaries of past and present, myth and reality.  The century-old shipping drama is no longer part of the landscape. Imagination offers solace. This, of course, is a work of the imagination."

Centre culturel suisse (Paris) / Pauline Julier -  Naturalis Historia | Gender and art | Scoop.it

"Naturalis Historia est une exposition qui met en scène, à travers un ensemble de dispositifs visuels et sonores, plusieurs histoires naturelles. Chaque histoire explore une situation d’humains aux prises avec la Nature, qui révèle leurs obsessions et ébranle leurs certitudes. Proche de l’essai, à la croisée du point de vue personnel et de l’étude documentaire, l’exposition adopte une forme kaléidoscopique. Elle dispose les récits et les traces formant les différentes strates d’un extrait d’encyclopédie personnelle, contemporaine et plastique."
