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
