Call for abstracts SAMLA 90 Panel_Women of the Avant-Garde and Political Dissent: Resisting Power from the Margins

Type: 
Conference
Date: 
June 4, 2018
Location: 
Mississippi, United States
Subject Fields: 
Art, Art History & Visual Studies, Literature, Women's & Gender History / Studies, Sexuality Studies, Film and Film History

This panel examines the role of avant-garde women in confronting models of gender, domesticity and political practices safeguarded by patriarchal society. From the margins of vanguardism women effectively engaged in syndicalist and anarchist movements that reacted to state politics, while urging the importance of launching social reforms and radical art. This panel will thus provide an overview of artists who participated in a variety of experimental trends such as Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, Imagism, Vorticism, Dadaism and Surrealism, among others.
