Dead Stop: Feminist Artists’ Legacies
In recent decades, the long overdue recognition of women and queer artists and artist of color has brought to light many important contributions to the visual arts. That attention would not have been possible without access to their archives and bodies of work, while other artists’ legacies have undoubtedly been lost due to the financial demands of preserving an artist’s oeuvre. Under representation in the art market and collecting institutions is often perpetuated and solidified after an artist’s death, and caretakers of estates are tasked with justifying artists’ professional reach, impact, and reputation. How can we do things differently—structurally, conceptually, and practically—to recognize and construct a more equitable and diverse history of art? What new research methods and feminist approaches can be employed for historically significant artists who lacked the support needed to develop robust archives during their lifetime? What can living artists do in the effort to change this posthumous problem?
The Feminist Art Project seeks proposals for presentations from artists, scholars, and executors discussing these issues and proposing new methods. Presentations with images are preferred for this panel. Session will be presented in-person.
