‘Ephemeral is Material: Curating Queer Feminist Art Histories’

Paper given at ‘Curating Materiality: Feminism and Contemporary Art History’, Edinburgh College of Art, University of Edinburgh

Feminism’s impact on the visual arts and art history has been widely felt since the late 1960s. Feminist art practices have consistently employed performative, participatory, digital and biopolitical methodologies, all of which are widely theorised in art histories as being dematerialised, immaterial and impermanent.

Curating Materiality has been organised collaboratively between Sarah Cook (Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art); Kirsten Lloyd (University of Edinburgh); and Catherine Spencer (University of St Andrews); and with kind assistance from Victoria Horne (University of Edinburgh) and Amy Tobin (University of York). (This event has been generously supported by the Scottish Graduate School for Arts and Humanities.)
