The Feminist Art Movement: Beyond NYC/LA Due Date: January 1, 2011
full name / name of organization:
Special Issue of Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies
Guest Editor: Michelle Moravec, email@example.com
In 2006 and 2007 twin events, the creation of the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum and the mounting of WACK! Art and the Feminist Revolution, created the sense that the 1970s feminist art movement had finally found its place in the art historical record. But significant lacunae still exist. Contemporary analyses largely focus on individual artists located in major metropolitan areas, particularly the American art centers of New York and Los Angeles or major Western European cities. Consideration of the connections among feminist artists, the movement aspect of the feminist art movement, are quite rare. Furthermore, the activist aspects of the movement are often lost in a focus on works more consistent with major trends in the art world. Submissions are sought that deal with the broad range of artists, activities and art forms that fall under the umbrella term feminist art movement.
An inter- and multidisciplinary journal, Frontiers welcomes submissions of creative works such as artwork, fiction, and poetry, as well as scholarly papers. Indeed, this issue is particularly interested in creative work influenced by the 1970s feminist art movement.
Works must be original, and not published or under consideration for publication elsewhere. We encourage those interested in contributing to the special issue to email the guest editor. Submissions should be sent to Frontiers as email attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org or on disc according to submission guidelines at http://shprs.clas.asu.edu/frontiers/submissions. Author names should not appear on the manuscript; list contact information separately.
