 The Feminist Art Project (TFAP), now in its ninth year of successfully shining a spotlight on feminist art and its impact on art and culture worldwide, announces the schedule for a special symposium at the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) in New York City. With an impressive list of participants, The Feminist Art Project will present a diverse set of panels that will be of interest to anyone curious about contemporary art and ideas. The 2015 Day of Panels will take place on Saturday, February 14 from 9am – 5pm at MAD. The panels, entitled Collective Creativity: Collaboration and Collectives in Feminist Art Practice, are organized by Damali Abrams, Artist; Jenn Dierdorf, Artist, Co-Director of the Fellowship Program and Development, A.I.R. Gallery; Kathleen Wentrack, Art historian, City University of NY,Queensborough. The symposium will focus on Collaborative working methodologies and how women’s collectives have been crucial to feminist art practice since the 1970s. As feminist practice continues to evolve, collaboration and collectivity continue to provide an alternative to the patriarchal ideal of individualism.

    • When I was an art student, Joyce Kozloff came and spoke with a small group of us women art students about her work. I also remember some stuff around Judy Chicago at an event, and respect these women on many levels, so when they sent me this press release I wanted to share it. Women artists still just do not get enough recognition, and I am glad that this event is taking place. Normally, I am not much for awards, but these Lifetime Achievement Awards seem valid and more than justified for these women artists!

  1. Kozloff will be coming to a brunch in New York on Friday the 13th, where there will be a signing of the book She’s Got What it Takes by Deanna Sirlin….it should be awesome…The really sad part is that there are so many women worthy of honoring but we can’t get to them fast enough.
