Call for Papers for Contemporary Feminist Art: Old Themes, New Variations Panel at Mid-America College Art Association (Oct. 3-6, 2012, WayneState University, Detroit, Michigan)
Panel Co-chairs: Deborah Frizzell & Harry Weil
Please send a 300-word abstract and CV to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 15, 2012.
This panel explores the art practices of younger generations of artists and their relationship to the feminist art practices of the 1960s and 70s. Of interest is the visual rhetoric of feminist art from the past and how it has developed and changed over the decades. What issues continue to dominate the field of feminist art? What has happened to the female body in art, where has it gone and what are its political and social implications today? Of particular interest are presentations addressing the work of feminist artists marginalized in the Western canon: women of color, Latin- and Asian-American artists, LGBT artists. Exploratory themes are welcome from art historians, curators, artists, and interdisciplinary scholars.
