I love feminist art. I keep a Carolee Schneemann book on hand to browse through when I need some brain coffee. Earlier this year I saw Lynn Hershman Leeson’s film !WOMEN ART REVOLUTION and I’m still talking about it constantly- which leads me to The Feminist Art Project, maintained by gender studies powerhouse Rutgers University.
According to its website, “The Feminist Art Project is an international collaborative initiative celebrating the Feminist Art Movement and the aesthetic, intellectual and political impact of women on the visual arts,art history and art practice, past and present.” It includes a searchable calendar of feminist art events across the world as well as my favorite part of the site – Feminist Art Resources in Education (FARE).
In order to access FARE, you need to create an account with the site – it only takes a minute and it’s 100% free. Once you create the account and log in, you can access a wealth of educational resources on feminist art, including downloadable lesson plans, multimedia resources, and adult education resources.
