Reclaiming the Female Body in Art

0 out of 5


For centuries male artists have depicted the female body and with this, in many ways, defined a prototype of the ideal beauty. Contemporary female artists are now reclaiming the female body and dispelling the notions that their male predecessors instilled. Explore artists from the 1970s to present day who challenged the norms of representation in an effort to give freedom to a new generation of women. In this session we will focus on artists such as Louise Bourgeois, The Gorilla Girls and Jenny Saville – all of whom have created depictions of the female body from the perspective of women, for an audience of both women and men.
