    Global Feminisms Remix

    Exhibition Didactics ?
    • Introduction
      Global Feminisms, recently on view at the Brooklyn Museum, was the first major exhibition to examine international feminist art at the turn of the twenty-first century. A selection of works from that exhibition remains on view here in Global Feminisms Remix.

      Like its widely praised predecessor, Remix calls attention to the fact that feminism is a truly global issue. Assembled here are works in a wide range of media made by 40 women artists from around the world and born since 1960. Many of the artists come from countries seldom included in the discourse on contemporary art, among them Guatemala, Kenya, Pakistan, Thailand, Korea, and India.

      Remix, like the earlier exhibition, seeks to challenge the dominance of European and American contemporary art, as well as the concept of a “global sisterhood,” a term that assumes a universal sameness among women without taking into account social, racial, ethnic, economic, sexual, and cultural differences. By making feminism a plural noun, feminisms, we mean to imply that there is not one single, unitary feminism any more than there is a universal “woman.” We hope that this show constitutes a reclamation of difference—seeing it as a major positive force in the human situation, rather than a crippling predicament. It is only through the acceptance of difference in its many varieties that art, and society, can change.

    "Hi, I am trying to find the name of the artist who took and is in the photograph that follows- http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/exhibitions/664/Global_Feminisms_Remix/image/216/Global_Feminisms_Remix._%7C08032007_-_03032008%7C._Installation_view. I believe the artist takes pictures of herself dressed as a man but then exposes her femaleness, as in the photo of her dressed as an Ascetic Jew exposing her breast. Can you help me find her information? Thanks in advance- Aimee Record"
