There has been an international groundswell in engagement and curiosity about feminism’s role in the development
of contemporary art. ‘Contemporary Art and Feminism’ examines this generative relationship, and feminism’s current
relevance to art making and analysis. Arguably, feminist critique has suffused the thinking of many disciplines, from
art history to literary studies and indigenous history. It has illuminated the assumptions that underpin knowledge and
exposed gaps in perspectives to generate far more complex, inclusive and comprehensive histories and theories,
creating paths to greater social justice and equity. Feminism scrutinizes the building blocks of culture and identity,
seeking to explain how power relations — including those that naturalise gender inequality — are embedded in
knowledges and practices. As such, feminism is one of the ways in which we can most usefully come to an
understanding of our image culture and the way visual images narrativise power relations.
