Feminism, in different shapes, has had great importance in the last 40 years for rewriting art history and for exhibiting art in new ways. Malin Hedlin Hayden and Jessica Sjöholm Skrubbe have gathered texts by a number of internationally prominent curators, art historians and artists, to discuss feminisms, in plural, in the art world. The book Feminism is still our name. Seven essays on historiography and curatorial practices (2010) is the starting point for an evening on feminist strategies for a more pluralistic art scene.
Malin Hedlin Hayden and Jessica Sjöholm Skrubbe, both active scholars at the Department of Art History at the Stockholm University, will be talking to Patrik Steorn from the Swedish Art Critics Association.
A bar serving light food will be open all evening, from 18:30 to 23:00. Address: Konstnärsklubben, 2nd floor, Smålandsgatan 7, Stockholm. Ring door bell marked Konstnärsklubben.
The Critics Salon is arranged by the Swedish Art Critics Association in collaboration with the Tuesday Club the meeting place for artists in Konstnärshuset (the Artists House) on the first Tuesday of every month.
The Critics Salon will be held in Swedish.
