Our spring issue looks at the unique relationships between art and feminisms. Taking into account the multiplicity of women’s subjectivity and heterogeneity, Feminisms explores how art practices and theories help to deconstruct the oppressions and limitations associated with gender. Focussing on female and feminist art practices—militant or not—from various communities, the protests, standpoints, and affirmations come in as many forms as the artists are diverse: subversion, uprising, reconsideration of gender archetypes and heteronormativity, post-colonial feminist theory, revival of ancestral practices, representation of the self, and conscious and assumed use of seduction are among the many ways of expressing, again, the necessity of feminisms.
