Nave Gallery Annex, Somerville, MA, USA


The history of feminist art starting in the 1970’s up until now has been filled with controversy, turbulence, progress and backlashes against women, women’s art, and its place in art history. From today’s perspective the feminism of the 1970’s is often viewed as utopian, sometimes naïve and even exclusionary. The 1980’s brought a backlash against feminism and feminist art that can be felt even today. Feminist art cannot be easily categorized by male-dominated establishment and as such it is often ignored. A question emerges: What is feminist art? And more accurately what is feminist art today?
