  • Who Counts? A Feminist Art Symposium

    This symposium took place October 3rd - 5th 2014 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Lectures, debates and exhibitions will bring together feminists, artists and representatives from artist-run centres across Canada to discuss feminist art in Canada now. There are so many things we need to talk about! Has gender equality in the visual arts been achieved? Why not? How have images by women evolved? Images of women? Is the male gaze still omnipresent? Is there a corresponding female gaze? What is the impact on art of a shifting object/subject position? How does the visual representation of women reflect (and construct) the position of women in society? Has feminist art been co-opted into old structures of race and class hierarchies? How have different cultural perspectives shifted first-world, white feminism and artmaking generally? What is the relationship between neo-liberalism, feminism and the art object? And more!
