Feminist Art

Feminist art is “neither a style nor a movement but instead a value system, a revolutionary strategy, a way of life,” described the influential art historian Lucy R. Lippard. In the 1960s and ’70s, feminist artists, activists, and historians such as Miriam Schapiro, Faith Ringgold, and Linda Nochlin challenged conventions around gender and artmaking through the lens of second-wave feminism. For example, Judy Chicago’s groundbreaking installation The Dinner Party (1974–79) showcases influential women throughout history, from Joan of Arc to Emily Dickinson. In addition to painting and sculpture, feminist artists are also known for their embrace of unconventional materials and techniques, such as collage, video art, body art, performance art, as well as traditional “women’s crafts” like embroidery, textile art, and fiber art.
