Feminist Art Club: The Lecture

Why is there an enormous triangular table at the Brooklyn Museum covered with genitalia-shaped dinner plates? Why was that Intro to Art History course you took in undergrad all about white men from Europe? How are art and feminism related, and what does it even mean for an artist to be feminist?

For answers to these questions and more, come join Feminist Art Club! In this two-hour lecture, you’ll get an accessible introduction to the history of modern art before delving more deeply into the Feminist Art movement of the 1970s and 80s. Become familiar with notable woman artists and their contributions to the canon, and leave ready to impress friends, coworkers, and museum curators alike with all of your new artsy expertise.

No previous knowledge of art history or feminism is required.
