Amelia Jones: “Activating the Feminist Body and the Curating of Feminist Art”
April 10, 2012 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm | Stevenson Fireside Lounge
This paper takes off from a brief history of the curating of feminist art in the North American and European contexts. My aim is to think about the exhibition, and the feminist show in particular, as a junction between practice and theoretical thought, a place of intersection between art making, the writing of art history, and the positing of critical interventions in institutions. I propose to look at these interrelated questions by a two-part inquiry, looking at both a history of feminist curating and a small selection of practices that might, precisely by maintaining an openness to ever- shifting structures of sexual and gender difference, be impossible to “tame” fully through curatorial practice.
This is the final event organized according to the 2011-2012 MACS research theme Exhibitions and Performance.
