Curated by Hilary Robinson, Ph.D
Feminist and..., organized by Guest Curator Hilary Robinson, Ph.D., presents new work by six women artists from throughout the world whose artistic practice shows that feminism is not a single-issue set of politics but rather a multi-vocal, multi-generational and multi-cultural evolution of thinking and practices.
Robinson’s selection of the artists, who worked in residence during summer of 2012, has been intentionally diverse; they represent different generations and hail from North America, Europe, and the Middle East. Some of the artists were practicing during the women’s movement of the 1960s and 70s, while others weren’t born until the heyday of the women’s movement was over.
