WAS – Women Artists Shows Salons Societies (Paris, 14 Jun 18)

Terra Foundation for American Art, 121 rue de Lille, 75007 Paris, Jun 14, 2018
Deadline: Jun 14, 2018

Catherine Dossin, Purdue University

The symposium « WAS (Women Artists Shows·Salons·Societies) : collective exhibitions of women artists in the 1970s in Europe and North America » organized by the research group Artls (École normale supérieure, PSL, Labex TransferS) and the Archives of Women Artists, Research and Exhibitions (AWARE), with the collaboration of Terra Foundation for American Art, is the second meeting of a research project focusing on group exhibitions of women artists, following the inaugural conference that took place in December 2017 at the Galeries Nationales du Jeu de Paume in Paris.

The ambition of the project is to build a descriptive and analytical catalogue of these exhibitions from the end of the 19th to the end of the 20th century and to start reflecting on their specific history, through the study of the evolution of the social, cultural, and institutional conditions that permitted or made them necessary through the analysis of the various levels of mediation and organisation at work in these shows, or also through the examination of their symbolical functioning and critical response.

This second event considers a decade marked in Europe and North America by the second-wave feminism that swept the world of art. This symposium wants to explore the phenomenon of collective exhibitions of women artists in all its magnitude and diversity, from the mythical Womanhouse exhibition organized by Judy Chicago and Miriam Schapiro in 1972) and the numerous events that marked the year 1975, decreed by the United Nations "International Women's Year," to lesser known exhibitions that punctuated the decade.
