The story of art has in many ways always been the story of women, but has not always centered a female viewpoint or analysis. With an eye to both history and contemporary themes in visual art, these five pieces explore how visual mediums, including performance and street art, are crucial in expanding the language of lived feminism and activism—as well as in critiquing the gender dynamics at play in the art world itself.

Art/History: Four intersections of art and activism

Maison D’Etre: Eight artists reimagine domesticity

Veiled Threats: The guerrilla graffiti of Princess Hijab

Interrogating Dissent: Coco Fusco on the art and politics of terror

Earth Movers: Quaking up Land Art’s forgotten feminist history
