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.

The Feminist Art Project is a strategic intervention against the ongoing erasure of women from the cultural record.

The Feminist Art Project re-focuses public attention on the signal achievements of the Feminist Art Movement and shines a spotlight on current feminist art influences, trends and accomplishments.

How does The Feminist Art Project accomplish this?

The Feminist Art Project (TFAP) promotes diverse feminist art events, education and publications through its website calendar. Website visitors can find exhibitions, lectures, artist talks, classes, films and other art related activities in their area or to include in their travel plans. TFAP preserves all calendar listings in the TFAP virtual archives and requests documentation from calendar participants to add to its physical archive.

TFAP facilitates regional networking and program development internationally and throughout the U.S. by linking visitors to TFAP Regional Coordinators. Regional coordinators and groups work with artists, teachers, writers, curators and venues to develop and promote feminist art events. Interested web-visitors can learn how to become involved with The Feminist Art Project in their own communities by contacting a coordinator in their region.

Does TFAP  promote individual artists on the web site?

TFAP does not promote the work of individual artists on its web site, but rather encourages artists to post their exhibitions, lectures performances and other art-related activities on the TFAP on-line calendar.

Who is eligible to be included on the TFAP event calendar?

The Feminist Art Project aims to effect permanent change by focusing on the impact of women artists and feminism on the art world, feminist content in art, feminist art practice and feminist analysis in art and art history and other cultural arenas. Artists, groups and presenters may post their national and international exhibitions, publications and programs that serve this mission on the calendar. All visual art media are eligible for inclusion.

Are there any fees?

There are no fees of any kind to use or contribute to the calendar or to download TFAP FARE.

How do I list my event or publication on the TFAP calendar?

To post on the TFAP calendar of events, go to LIST AN EVENT and follow the directions. Please do not send listings via email to The Feminist Art Project. Please allow one week for posting.
