‘A rousing riposte to anyone who thinks that feminism is now 'post', this book is full of fascinating accounts of a disparate range of practises and provides a challenge to patriarchal attitudes In the artworld In engaging, enlightening and, at times, humorous ways - a veritable celebration of female creativity and thought.' - Elizabeth Ann Macgregor OBE, Director, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia
Feminist Perspectives on Art is an anthology of essays that are indebted to feminist theory, practice, activism and methodology. The collection aims to capture a sense of the recent growth in feminist scholarship in contemporary art, and in particular creative practice research. l he essays are not simply pieces by female artists and theorists, but also by those working within the generative framework of feminist analysis and the ethics of feminist method. The authors seek to offer rigorous critiques of 'new materialist' perspectives and provide novel insights into contemporary practice including performance, participatory art, video and cross-cultural collaborations.
