Some of the objects displayed in the Feminist Center for Art are made by men and also do not seem to address feminist concerns. Why is that?
It's a good question. While some do address feminist concerns or even self-identify as feminists, another aspect of their inclusion to consider is a feminist look at their work in terms of curatorial practice rather than solely presentation of feminist art.
Is that true for Dread Scott? I see nothing feminist in this photograph.
My argument for the Dread Scott piece would be that any work which critiques or attempts to dismantle white supremacy in some way intersects with feminism, especially as it concerns black women.
That’s a good argument. Can I steal it? I wouldn’t have thought that carefully!
And why Warhol?
With the Warhol piece, a photograph of a race riot, the same argument could apply.
Yes agreed on Warhol.
