I didn't know where to put this so i decided here. I'm doing all about feminism for one of my art projects but i seem to be running out of artists and ideas, so if you know any artists then please send me a link or their name.

Thank you xoxoxox

Hmm.. I don't really know what "feminist" art is these days, but I'll move this thread to the "Erotica" section because it's pretty NSFW. I hope you don't mind.

Well, much like Suzanne, I have no idea what feminist art would be. What I do know is that the first image looks quite a bit like an old Erwin Olaf photo.

From: "Schwartz, Alexandra"
Subject: MoMA Symposium "The Feminist Future"
Date: Mon, 22 Jan 2007 11:28:22 -0500
---------------------------------------------------------

The Feminist Future: Theory and Practice in the Visual Arts
New York, Museum of Modern Art
January 26-27, 2007

This symposium addresses critical questions surrounding the relationship
between art and gender, bringing together international leaders in
contemporary art, art history, and related disciplines. After the activism
of the 1960s and '70s, and the revisionist critiques of the 1980s and '90s,
this symposium will examine ways in which gender is currently addressed by
artists, museums and the academy, and its future role in art practice and
scholarship.

The Feminist Future is entirely sold out for both Friday and Saturday.
Depending on availability, additional tickets for the live event in the
Titus 1 Theater and/or the video simulcast in the Bartos Theater may be
released beginning at 9:30 a.m. on the mornings of Friday, January 26
(tickets for Friday only), and Saturday, January 27 (tickets for Saturday
only). The line will form in front of MoMA's Ronald and Jo Carole Lauder
Building, 11 West 53 Street.

The Feminist Future symposium will be audiostreamed live on WPS1 Art Radio
on January 26 and 27, from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. each day.
Audio and video recordings of the symposium will be posted in their entirety
at www.moma.org/audio one to two weeks after the event.

The Feminist Future is made possible by The Modern Women's Fund.

Quote
Call this the year of institutional consciousness-raising: three major art centers, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Brooklyn Museum, have scheduled big events devoted to feminism’s impact on art history—past, present, and future. And, not surprisingly, the main initiators of these events are women.

Frieze issue 105: FEMINISM

(http://mailer.e-flux.com/mail_images/1172758863cover105_web.jpg)

Quote
‘People say, “How come you don’t take pictures of girls?” And I say, “Well I do, I just use boys to do them.”’ Collier Schorr

‘I can understand young artists saying their practice isn’t feminist, but saying you’re not a feminist, that’s just tragic, I think, and misguided. Whether you are a man or a woman.’ Connie Butler


The March issue of frieze is themed around Feminism. Connie Butler discusses her forthcoming exhibition ‘WACK! Art and the Feminist Revolution’ with Amelia Jones, and Dominic Eichler considers the themes explored by Collier Schorr in her photographs and collages.

‘Cinema’s unique capacity lies in its ability to, as Maya Deren writes memorably, “put real toads in imaginary gardens.”’

Melissa Gronlund looks back at the career of Maya Deren, whose radical and influential films are the subject of a new book published by Anthology Film Archives. Will Bradley is intrigued by Cathy Wilkes’ psychologically and socially evocative installations, while Christy Lange reflects on the videos, performances and events staged by Annika Eriksson.

From Mexico to Egypt and Senegal, Jennifer Doyle, Gilane Tawadros and N’Goné Fall examine diverse approaches taken by women to art-making. Jan Verwoert unearths alternative histories in the work of Michaela Melián. Eleanor Antin responds to the frieze questionnaire.

Plus Mathilde ter Heijne by Catrin Lorch, Claire Fontaine by Vivian Rehberg, Josephine Meckseper by Julia Bryan-Wilson and Kan Xuan by Douglas Heingartner.


In the front section Robert Storr reflects on the changes made by Feminism on the art world, while Brian Dillon is absorbed by two books about the mysteries posed to historical anatomy by women’s bodies. Tirdad Zolghadr explores the thresholds of Feminism in two new European exhibitions, and Jenni Sorkin has misgivings about the hotly anticipated Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.

Also, renowned sociologist Saskia Sassen talks to Roland Kapferer about the role of women in society today. In ‘Life in Film’, Runa Islam lists the movies that have influenced her and her work.


The back section includes reviews of: ‘Cooling Out’, Barbara Visser, Brice Marden, ‘USA Today’, Elke Krystufek, ‘How to Build a Universe’, ‘Riflemaker Becomes Indica’, ‘The Secret Public’, ‘The Perfect Man Show’, Alexis Hunter, ‘Academy’, Mel Bochner, ‘This Will Not Happen Without You’, Gardar Eide Einarsson, ‘Clip/Stamp/Fold’, ‘The 5th Asia-Pacific Triennial’, ‘When the Moon Shines on the Moonshine’, Jennifer Bornstein, ‘Ruby Satellite’, Suzanne Treister, Agnieszka Brzezanska, Brian Fahlstrom, Conrad Shawcross, ‘Semina Culture’ and ‘I Like America’.

You seem to have discovered a real "trend" in the art world, fairytales...

Feminist Art Goes Back Under the Lens

Quote
As we head into a month full of exhibitions devoted to feminist art — including the opening of the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum, and a major exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles — a reasonable question might be: Why now? Why, 30 years after the heyday of the feminist art movement, are we putting this work under the lens?

Eleanor Antin is currently presenting her post-historical antics at San Diego Museum of Art (http://www.sdmart.org/) (until Nov 2):

"The Artist's Studio" from "The Last Days of Pompeii" by Eleanor Antin (http://www.pbs.org/art21/artists/antin/), 2001

From the museum website:

Quote
[...] Eleanor Antin was born in New York City in 1935. She is considered one of the most influential artists to emerge from the feminist art movement of the 1960s and 1970s and is also one of the most highly regarded women conceptual artists of the period. An influential performance artist, film and video maker, and photographer and installation artist, Antin delves into history as a way to explore the present. She lives and works in San Diego, California, and is an Emeritus Professor at the University of California, San Diego. [...]

There was also a short review about the exhibition in the Aug/Sep issue of Art World (http://artworldmagazine.com.au/) which - I hope you understand - I really can't be bothered to type now.  :-?
