First Friday with Claudine Majzels
Feminist Art: becoming a historical subject
What would a history of feminist art look like? When did it start? Is it over? Is feminist art a thing of the past? Another “ism” or historical style? Has a new canon of feminist art been established alongside the old hegemony of art history? Has feminist art been co-opted into the old structures of patriarchy? Claudine Majzels will begin to explore these questions and lead what will surely be a rousing discussion!
Claudine Majzels (Ph.D.) teaches Art History at the University of Winnipeg where she has created new courses on feminist art, Aboriginal arts and craft, and a seminar on “The Body in the Visual Arts” as part of the new MA program in Cultural Studies: Curatorial Practices at the U of W. Her publications include studies of 17th century Dutch Mennonite women artists and Winnipeg artist Caroline Dukes.
