|Women's Fund Lecture Series features Nicole Derenne|
Nicole Derenne will discuss feminism in Western art, from women artists active in the 1950s modernist movement to art that portrayed distinctly feminist concerns in the 1970s, 80s and 90s. She will also address how feminist perspectives in art have changed during this time period, and how various feminist theories have influenced the portrayal of women’s issues in art. Examples of artwork from specific artists will be discussed, including Judy Chicago, Miriam Schapiro, Mary Kelly, Kiki Smith, Cindy Sherman, Barbara Krueger and Jenny Holzer. This artwork will be viewed within the context of issues pertinent to feminist concerns, including identity, perception of beauty, women’s work and gender representation.
The lecture is at 4:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 6, in the Idea Lab of the Ina Mae Rude Entrepreneur Center, Center for Innovation. A reception will follow to meet and visit with Derenne. The event is free; all are welcome.
Derenne received a master of arts in art history from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2003.
