Les musées interrogent les clichés sexistes et xénophobes de leurs collections | Gender and art | Scoop.it

"Pour comprendre une époque et ses fantasmes, il y a les livres dans les bibliothèques, mais aussi les musées, qui s’inscrivent de plus en plus dans une relecture vivifiante de leurs œuvres, à la lumière des débats actuels. Ou quand le mouvement #MeToo bouscule la culture museale."

Aurès, 1935. Photographies de Thérèse Rivière et Germaine Tillion

Aurès, 1935. Photographies de Thérèse Rivière et Germaine Tillion | Gender and art | Scoop.it

"Cette exposition du Pavillon Populaire présente, pour la première fois ensemble, une sélection de photographies prises par deux jeunes chercheuses, Thérèse Rivière et Germaine Tillion, lors d’une mission ethnographique conduite à partir de 1935 dans l’Aurès. [...]

Si Thérèse Rivière s’est plutôt concentrée sur l’étude des activités matérielles et à l’économie domestique, Germaine Tillion s’est quant à elle consacrée à celle des relations de parenté et de pouvoir dont traiteront par la suite ses ouvrages Le Harem et les cousins (1966) et Il était une fois l’ethnographie (2000)."

L’opéra n’échappe pas aux stéréotypes. Pour faire carrière, il ne suffit plus d’avoir une belle voix: les artistes lyriques doivent aussi être minces, jeunes, sportifs et attirants.

Virginia Woolf: An Exhibition Inspired by her Writings at Tate, St Ives | Gender and art | Scoop.it

"Virginia Woolf, pioneer of modernist fiction and all-around icon, is the raison d’être for a new exhibition at Tate St Ives. Her writings provide the connective tissue — whether “tangible, anecdotal, geographic or imagined,” said Laura Smith, Exhibitions and Displays Curator — among a selection of international feminist artists."


Virginia Woolf: An Exhibition Inspired by her Writings at Tate St Ives is on view February 10 to April 29, 2018.

Rétrospective Chantal Akerman - La Cinémathèque française, du 31 janvier au 2 mars 2018 | Gender and art | Scoop.it
"De Bruxelles à Tel-Aviv, de New York à Paris ou Moscou, l'œuvre protéiforme de Chantal Akerman se déploie, inquiète et souveraine, aux frontières de l'essai et de la fiction de soi, autant de récits de solitude et de documentaires à la recherche de l'autre, de comédies à l'humour triste, de somptueuses adaptations littéraires et d'enquêtes généalogiques sans fin. Akerman a été une cinéaste hantée par toutes les histoires d'hier et d'aujourd'hui."

WIELS opens the first exhibition ever dedicated to the Belgian artist Sophie Podolski | Gender and art | Scoop.it

BRUSSELS.- WIELS presents the first exhibition ever dedicated to the Belgian artist Sophie Podolski. Her work is emblematic of a time marked by sexual liberation, anti-psychiatry and a youth counterculture. In the brief period between 1968 and 1974 – when she took her own life at the age of 21 – she produced a remarkable body of graphic works, and one book titled Le pays où tout est permis [The Country Where Everything Is Permitted].

Zoe Leonard: Survey | Whitney Museum of American Art

Zoe Leonard: Survey | Whitney Museum of American Art | Gender and art | Scoop.it

"Zoe Leonard: Survey is the first large-scale overview of the artist’s work in an American museum. The exhibition looks across Leonard’s career to highlight her engagement with a range of themes, including the history of photography, gender and sexuality, loss and mourning, migration, displacement, and the urban landscape. More than it focuses on any particular subject, however, Leonard’s work slowly and reflectively calibrates vision and form."

Arrivée de Tunisie de façon clandestine, le personnage de Samia nous hante comme une apparition. Elle rejoint ainsi les portraits si rares des visages incarnant les parcours de l’immigration.
