Researching Feminist Art: Then and Now

Where: Wilson Library, Fourth Floor

The House We Built: Feminist Art Then and Now was organized by the Katherine E. Nash Gallery and is co-sponsored by the Department of Art, the Department of Art History, the Department of Gender, Women’s and Sexuality Studies, and the University Libraries with support from the College of Liberal Arts Freshman Research and Creative Awards Program. The exhibition in the Katherine E. Nash Gallery was co-curated by Joyce Lyon, Associate Professor of Drawing and Painting, and Howard Oransky, Director of the Nash Gallery. The exhibition in the T.R. Anderson Gallery was co-curated by Deborah Boudewyns, Arts, Architecture and Landscape Architecture Librarian, and Christina Michelon, M.A. student in the Department of Art History.

Three University of Minnesota students who received the College of Liberal Arts Freshman Research and Creative Awards Program grant in 2012 conducted research for the exhibition on the artists who founded the feminist art organizations of the 1970s. Madison Sternig, Candace Thooft and Austin Voigt worked with Christina Michelon, M.A. student in the Department of Art History. The students will discuss their experiences conducting curatorial research.

Katherine E. Nash Gallery Mission
The Katherine E. Nash Gallery is a research laboratory for the practice and interpretation of the visual arts. We believe the visual arts have the capacity to interpret, critique and expand on all of human experience. Our engagement with the visual arts helps us to discover who we are and understand our relationships to each other and society. The Katherine E. Nash Gallery will be a center of discourse on the practice of visual art and its relationship to culture and community -- a place where we examine our assumptions about the past and suggest possibilities for the future. The Nash Gallery will play an indispensible role in the educational development of students, faculty, staff and the community. http://nash.umn.edu/

Department of Art Mission
The Department of Art provides an introduction to the practice of art for all students as well as immersive training for emerging artists. We promote creative expression and conceptual development through a broad range of art disciplines and practices. Initial experiences emphasizing traditional methods are supplemented at intermediate and advanced levels by experimental processes. We offer courses in painting and drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics and experimental media (EMA). Students pursue their work in our state of the art facilities, mentored by our faculty, all artists recognized in their fields. http://www.art.umn.edu/

University Libraries Mission
