In honor of Women's History Month, embark on a journey around the world to celebrate the significant contributions of women artists & uncover how women are dominating, shaping, and enriching the global art scene.

With two incredible guest speakers!

Discover the profound impact of women in the art world, one region at a time. Each week, we'll embark on a virtual expedition to different corners of the globe, shining a spotlight on three extraordinary women artists who are defining the contemporary art scene in their respective geographies.

In Colombia, we'll explore Olga de Amaral's textile art that merges tradition with modernity, alongside Doris Salcedo's impactful sculptures. In Brazil, Beatriz Milhazes' canvases will mesmerize us, in Germany, Katharina Fritsch challenges reality through her monumental sculptures, and in Korea, Conceptual artist, Kimsooja immerses us in light, texture and sound in her perplexing installations. We'll examine emerging artists as well, such as Christina Quarles and Ana Segovia, showcasing their innovative contributions to the contemporary art landscape.

Meet Our Honored Guests!

This art series features not one but two eminent female guest speakers! First, we are honored to welcome Bridget Quinn, a distinguished art historian and best-selling author on women artists. Quinn's notable publications include She Votes: How U.S. Women Won Suffrage, and What Happened Next," selected as one of the Best History Books of 2020 by Amazon Editors, and Broad Strokes: 15 Women Who Made Art and Made History (in That Order), which received acclaim as one of the Best Art & Photography Books of 2017 and made the 2018 Amelia Bloomer List for recommended feminist literature. Her work has been recognized for its engaging, smart writing and has been translated into four languages, demonstrating her significant impact on the field. Raised in Montana and having lived in various parts of the world, including Norway, Quinn brings a diverse perspective to her teaching and writing. With Quinn, we'll voyage to Norway and Sweden to learn about Scandinavian artists past and present!

Our next distinguished speaker is Laura Tanner, a groundbreaking artist and assistant professor of Studio Practice at Florida Atlantic University. Tanner's work spans drawing, installation, and social practice, focusing on revisionist histories that highlight systemic inequities. Her art serves as a platform for exploring the complexities of historical narratives, particularly from the perspective of a Southern woman. Tanner's collaborations with historical institutions and her use of various forms of documentation, such as community cookbooks, underscore the significant yet often overlooked contributions of women and people of color. Her gorgeous and innovative work illuminates the intricacies of societal structures and the role of art in challenging and redefining them.

 

Together, Bridget Quinn and Laura Tanner promise to provide a rich and multifaceted exploration of women's roles in art, both past and present, offering unique insights and perspectives that are sure to inspire us on our Global Art Journey!
