A female vision of art history

In the United States since the 1960s and 1970s, feminist studies have underlined the almost systematic eviction of women artists from the history of art.

However, rereading certain movements in the light of female practices can offer us a different understanding. From Félicie de Fauveau to Alice Neel, via Hilma af Klint and Betty Woodman, we shall be looking at the implications of the “marginal” – or the underestimated – in the fine arts in order to untangle idées reçues from historical truths.

Charlotte Cosson and Emmanuelle Luciani, graduates in art history and law, are exhibition curators and art critics. Most recently, they organized COOL – As a State of Mind at MAMO (Marseilles) and From Transhuman to South Perspectives at Rowing (London). They are editors-in-chief of CODE South Way magazine, devoted to emerging art.
