Womens Erotic Art

On International Women's Day (8th March 2013

The aim is to create an on line community that
seeks to find new ways to articulate what it means
to be a women in relation to art and sexuality.

If sexuality used to be a place where real
people had a real connection…

Using the power of aesthetics
We are now here to readdress the balance

You can also do this today!

Welcome to the Feminist Art Base, the first online digital archive dedicated solely to feminist art. This ever-growing database offers profiles from the most prolific contributors to feminist art from the 1960s to the present. Each profile includes multiple images, video and audio clips, short biographies, CVs, and "Feminist Artist Statements."

Our goal is to make this groundbreaking archive a comprehensive resource for artists, curators, scholars, and the general public. We see this database as an integral tool for accomplishing the mission of the Center: to present feminism in an approachable and relevant manner; to educate new generations about the meaning of feminist art; and to raise awareness of feminism's cultural contributions.

The Art History Archive - Feminist Art

Location

United States

Especially since the late 1960s, when the feminist art movement can be said to have emerged, women have been particularly interested in what makes them different from males — what makes women artists and their art different from male artists and their art. This has been most prominent in the United States, Britain, and Germany, although there are numerous precursors to the movement, and it has spread to many other cultures since the 1970s.
