Free online workshop with The Courtauld Young People’s Programme
Suitable for ages 16-18
How can art history help us to think through questions of gender, subjectivity and ideas about ‘greatness’?
Led by art historian Tilly Scantlebury, this free online workshop will explore modern and contemporary artworks in a variety of mediums and consider how feminist art history helps us to not only examine the artworks themselves, but also question the world and our place in it.
Through lively group discussion you will discover how artists use their medium to challenge established categories of gender, the representation of women’s bodies and sexuality, and historical power relations. We will look closely at Louise Bourgeois’ sculptures, Martha Rosler’s collages and introduce Linda Nochlin’s infamous essay, Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?
