Call for Papers and Presentations
CAA 106th Annual Conference
Los Angeles, February 21-24, 2018

Feminist Art in Response to the State
Chairs: Rachel Lachowicz, Claremont Graduate University, rachel.lachowics@cgu.edu;
Connie Tell, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, ctell@cwah.rutgers.edu

 Feminisms inherently engage politics, and by extension systemic state power and the marginalization and oppression of individuals. Current events have triggered a magnified importance and urgency to this engagement. The Feminist Art Project seeks proposals for papers and presentations from artists, art historians, and theorists related to the ways in which art can further respond to politics and amplify resistance to the state. Topic possibilities may be: effective strategies that artists currently or have employed and ways in which feminisms can evolve in constructing new paradigms as well as critiquing the shortcomings of existing methods. Proposals with potential images to be included are preferred.
