Fans of Feminism

A survey of contemporary feminist art featuring a selection of work from The Cass Feminist Society and friends.
Date: 9 February 2013

‘Fans of Feminism’ is a survey of contemporary feminist art featuring a selection of work from The Cass Feminist Society and friends.

The show explores the notion of ‘temporal drag’, which forges an active dialogue between contemporary feminist discourse, and the strong tradition of feminist art history and criticism.

This approach establishes feminism not so much as a history, but as an on-going set of ideals - demonstrating the relevant, practical and positive impact the feminist art continuum has had, and continues to have, on the lives of women and men.

Exhibiting artists: Judy Chicago, Thessa van der Kuyp, Seana Wilson, Caroline Halliday, Sheila Buckley, Mo Throp, Lisa Snook, Sarah Maple, Alexis Hunter, Sarah Lederman, Iona Roisin, Karen Turner, Adrian Dunn, Emily Clack, Coral Howard, Banu Cansever, Sebastienne McKay, Sarah Williams, Ruth Selig, Andrew Harawha, Misery Muff, Nikoo Shayesteh, Pat Hulin, Bob and Roberta Smith, Zoe Clifford, Ronan Salaun, Donna Barnett, Mona Ruijs, Natalie J Armes, Paula Stevens-Hoare, Roger Clarke, Fiona Dent, Julia Noble, Jo Ellison, Guy Assienne, Farida Bhula, Megan Jenkins, Parkash Kaur, Rolina Blok, Fiona Atkinson, Rachel Wooller, Jessica Crowley, Katharine Fitzakerly, Lewis Quinn, Marion Hack, Francesco Benenato, Hip Hop Hijabis, Gwen Anderson, Jemime Maccouu, Layla Belhaj, LUMASTUDIO, Klara Cecmanova, Maria Keirkhah, Oriana Fox, Andrea Medjesi-Jones, Jo Longhurst and Oreet Ashery

Curated by: Thessa van der Kuyp, Seana Williams, Caroline Halliday, Sheila Buckley and co-curated by Mo Throp.

Prizes consist of ‘The Judy Chicago Award’ and ‘The People’s Choice Award’
