Title: On display : The history and representational politics of feminist new media and performance art
Authors: Clausen, Barbara
Issue Date: 5-Jul-2016
Series/Report no.: Practices: Curating Alternate Histories;07.11.2015 Session 5B
Abstract: This presentation addresses the history and representational politics of feminist and emancipatory new media and performance based art practices since the 1960s in Canada and the US. The aim is to discuss pioneering work by artists such as Vera Frenkel, Dana Claxton, Joan Jonas, Suzy Lake, and Lisa Steel, as well as early curatorial manifestations, from events such as 9 Evenings in 1966 to Peggy Gale's exhibition Videoscape in 1973. This talk will look at how the correllating relationship between new media and performance art has through its emblematic awareness of its distribution, whether virtual or real, contributed to the institutionalization and current interest in this field of work.
