(http://www.vidaweb.org/) • VIDA’s mission as a research-driven organization is to increase critical attention to contemporary women’s writing as well as further transparency around gender equality issues in contemporary literary culture. VIDA is to the literary arts what the Guerrilla Girls are to the visual arts, so students can also learn more about how and when women’s voices are heard. Introduction • Not all women’s art is feminist art, but feminism has impacted every aspect of society in which we live today. Radical ideas evolving from Simone de Beauvoir’s The Second Sex influenced generations of creative women during the women’s equality movement called the “Second Wave,” few more influential than artist Judy Chicago. The 60s also brought the Civil Rights Movement and the question we asked in Week 1, “Where are the women?” We must add, “Where are the African American, the Asian, and the American Indian women?” Feminism is dynamic, and as feminist critic bell hooks (2000) explained in Feminism is for Everybody, “No intervention changed the face of American feminism more than the demand that feminist thinkers acknowledge the reality of race and racism” (p.55). As feminism has evolved to feminisms and to gender studies, we must also ask, “Where are the queer, the transgendered, and the disabled women?” and “How has gender ideology impacted men’s lives as well as women’s?” Judy Chicago, a pioneer feminist artist in the 1970s, who celebrated women’s achievements in the “The Dinner Party” in 1979, explored the gender construct of masculinity, in “Power Play” in the 1980s. • Questions multiply exponentially in these complex and global times. In contemporary arts, the emphasis of this final week, we find that borders between life and art are often blurred. The words of American Indian poet, musician, and playwright Joy Harjo describe these connections: • I feel strongly that I have a responsibility to all the sources that I am: to all past and future ancestors, to my home country, to all places that I touch down on and that are myself, to all voices, all women, all of my tribe, all people, all earth, and beyond that to all beginnings and endings. (Harjo, 2016) • Harjo’s work, according to the Poetry Foundation, is “transformational,” like poet Adrienne Rich, who came before her. The Poetry Foundation explains the way that poetry can transforms by healing: “Implicit in Rich's image of the androgyny is the idea that we must write new myths, create new definitions of humanity which will not glorify this angry chasm but heal it" (www.poetryfoundation.org). No better example of how an artist can create a work that will help to heal humanity is the work of sculptor and architect Maya Lin and her controversial Viet Nam Veterans’ Memorial. Asian American, Lin was a young student of 21 when she won the contest with her design. • In the 21st century, women are creating culture not only at home, but around the world. Women are found in every area of the arts, including filmmaking, photography, zines, and of course, music, visual art, writing, journalism, dance and performance of all types. So, it would seem that women have achieved equality in the art world. Statistics show otherwise, however, and we close the course by coming back full circle to ARTnews, publisher of our opening essay, “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?” over 45 years ago. In the June 2015 issue, the magazine published an update titled “Taking the Measure of Sexism: Facts, Figures, and Fixes” whose statistics and “measures” show, in the author’s words, that “Sexism is still so insidiously woven into the institutional fabric, language, and logic of the mainstream art world that it often goes undetected” (Reilly, 2015, para. 3). Still, there is no denying that women have been creating culture, and in our final week, you will have the opportunity to explore the phenomenal cultural contributions to contemporary society by women in the arts.
