In the 1970's, women artists were mostly distressed with equal representation in art institutions. They formed a variety of women's art organizations, like the Art Worker's Coalition, Women Artists in Revolution (WAR) and the AIR Gallery, to specifically address Feminist artists' rights and issues in the art community. Feminist artists attempted to revise an untrue male-dominated art history as well as change the modern world around them through their art. Female artist focused on intervening in the traditional art world, as well as in everyday social intercommunication. Creative thinkers and makers give joy, interaction, and inspiration to their communities and they also give considerate criticism to our economic, political, and social structures. I feel like feminist art is an important art movement to show the lives and experiences about women's lives. It's a great way to show what
female artist can do.
|Anatomy of a Kimono (1974) Miriam Schapiro|
The Artist that created the example I chose was Miriam Schapiro. I feel like she was trying to show what female artist and feminists can accomplish. Miriam Schapiro created unique feminist artworks, including, The Anatomy of Kimono, it highlights women's relation to those materials and processes. I do feel like a single artist can change someones perception about art because art can lure people to imagination and creativity. Ever since technology was invented, you could do art with technology. For example, Graphic designs and digital art. The objective of graphic design is to create original images, illustrations, and logos. Digital art is made with digital technology, for example, pictures done all on computer or hand-drawn images scanned into a computer and completed using a software program like Adobe Illustrator. Art with technology has progressed a lot throughout the years and it will keep progressing.
