Intervening Feminisms: Social Justice and The Feminist Art Movement
A Graduate Student Symposium
JUNE 7, 2008
"Women's Studies are not just about women-but the social systems and ideological schemata which sustain the domination of men over women within the other mutually inflicting regimes of power in the world, namely those of class and race."
In honor of The Feminist Art Project, the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Corridor (MAAC) seeks papers that address the interrelated nature of feminism and social justice. Feminism is not a fixed notion; its parameters continue to expand and develop new relationships with myriad political, social and cultural issues. The intersection of these themes with the concept of feminism allows for greater understanding of work created by feminist artists. Papers should not privilege gender, but see it in conversation with issues pertaining to the environment, racism, censorship, war, sexual violence or globalization. Papers may address historical or contemporary art practice.
The symposium will be held in conjunction with the exhibition Feminist Interrogations at ARC Gallery (832 W. Superior Street, #204). It will be a one-day event held at Intuit (756 N. Milwaukee Avenue), with a closing reception at Woman Made Gallery (685 N. Milwaukee Avenue).
Abstracts should be a maximum of 500 words. Please include your name, contact information and university affiliation. Email abstracts to firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline for abstracts: February 15, 2008
