further to this discussion some of you may have noticed the Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon which took place across the globe on Saturday February 1st.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/ArtAndFeminism
http://artandfeminism.tumblr.com/
https://eyebeam.org/events/art-feminism-wikipedia-edit-a-thon
80 or so new articles were created, and more than 60 expanded or cleaned up, and a movement was started.

In Dundee we are going to host another one, probably March 13th, and start to have regular get-togethers to increase the amount of information about women artists on that most global of resources.

If you want to add to the list of pages which need editing or creating on Wikipedia, please do so.

and yes, I agree, it is a race and gender issue…. and I feel we need to be aware with exhibitions that they are a key part in the historicisation of a field of practice, especially when they are the "first" show on a topic in a place or a show that purports to show "pioneers" - how can we balance this hyperbole around the practice and complicate the picture of the field we work in? This particular show in question was collectively curated, but raises an important problem in this regard.

Hi Annick and colleagues

The exhibition in Bogota was curated by John Angel Rodriquez - yes?

There has also be some exchange on the Yasmin list about this. One contributor commented that there were no French artists involved. I don't know if this was a serious comment.

Liliane Lijn is someone whose work has been pioneering in many senses. She wrote a lovely essay recently called Poetry, Language, Code, Industry which we commissioned for the Visualise: Making Art in Context publication (published by Anglia Ruskin University November 2013). If anyone wishes to contact me offlist I can try to send you the book or at least the essay. Annick, it is not (yet) in French but I guess could be easily translated - I could ask Liliane - and certainly it offers good insights into the nature of being a female artist on pioneering ground over the past five decades.
Best wishes

The spontaneous list was necessary as a reaction, but I
would be more reluctant in building a map : it puts again
women in an inferior position.
Reacting, like in this case, is more important to me and of
course including them in exhibitions, conferences, etc. And
documenting their work through art history research and writing.
This said, in the Leonardo/Olats Pioneers & Pathbreakers
project : only one women + a couple !!! Ouch ! Should I do
what I advocate for ?!
OK. We did not move further into this project by lack of
fundings, but still...
If someone is ready to write in French about a woman, I
would be delighted. I would love to have something on Vera
Molnar. At the moment, I have zero budget to move on, on
this project ... and it does take real time to do it in a
professional way.
If someone is interested ....

Hey Marc, no sweat, that's how I - for one - read it
completely; and I
really don't understand how anyone could be insulted by
such an incredibly
generous list. Clearly, we're not looking here for an
ultimate and newly
objective 'map', that's the whole point! We're looking
more for an
approach and awareness, of different partialities, and how
to robustly
tilt them......

Thanks for the hour, and hours, you put in :)

Pauline.

Hi all,

I just wanted to respond to those surprised I did not
included them in
the list.

Well, of course I'm going to miss out names and you're
missing the
point. It's an example not a literal replacement.

I spent an hour of my time compiling the selected
'female' names to
highlight how extensive this issue is.

We need to change this not by compiling lists (it's a
start) but by
challenging our own compliance allowing it to happen. It
misrepresents
our culture and practice and we should be embarrassed if
we let it go on.

When ever women and working class people, are viewed
through the usual
protocols and defaults of the patriarchal gaze of an
'assumed'
objectivity. It implements a mythology via processes of
non-inclusion.
This enhances the condition to further introduce the idea
of women and
others not included as subordinates rather than as being
part of the
whole story.

Recognizing this condition is the start of being
conscious of it.
Critiquing this repeated behaviour demands another level
of engagement.

To borrow a phrase from Haraway, it would have to be “a
feminist voice;
it is also a whisper of humanism”.

Wishing you well.

marc
