Feminist Curation

Students in my spring 2012 "New Museum Theory" course read an article on feminist curation and feminist curatorial strategies. We then had a discussion, that was open to the public. In recounting the group component of that experience with a student from the course, I realized that, while small, our group discussion did have a lasting impact. So while I found the article problematic, it did, at the very least, generate discussion and make an impression.

note: in the spring I will teach Women & Art and will work on an exhibition on Women Painters & Etchers to be held in our Wilson Gallery. I am looking forward to both experiences and sharing these with students.
